The Crow Wing County household hazardous waste facility will open April 27 at the Crow Wing County Landfill.

The facility will be open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. the second Wednesday and second Saturday of each month from May through October.

"The HHW site provides a location to properly dispose of old paint cans, cleaners and other chemicals. It's time to clean out the garage or basement shelves of these leftover products," Mark Liedl, land services director, said in a news release. "There is no fee for this service, which keeps these chemicals out of our environment, protecting our water resources."

The facility accepts, for free disposal, hazardous household waste items such as:
