The Crow Wing County Household Hazardous Waste Facility will open April 24 at the Crow Wing County Landfill.

The facility will be open the second Wednesday and second Saturday of each month, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., May through September. In October, it will be open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. the first Wednesday and first Saturday. This is a free service for county residents.

"The household hazardous waste 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," stated environmental services supervisor Ryan Simonson in a news release. "This free service keeps these chemicals out of our environment, protecting our water resources."

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

• Latex paints, oil paints, stains and aerosols;
