FDL County Clean Sweep

Fond du Lac County residents can safely get rid of their old household and agricultural chemicals during a clean sweep program at the County Fairgrounds Saturday. Diana Tscheschlok of the County’s UW Extension Service says the County’s Land and Conservation Department is hosting the event from 9 a.m. to noon at the Expo Building. She says the cost is $5 a car load, which is pretty cheap. She says there are some things that won’t be accepted such as latex-based paints. She says if you have a container that is almost full you can take it to the Habitat ReStore and they will resell it. Otherwise put some kitty litter or sand in the container to absorb the paint and then throw it in the trash when it dries out. There is a list of what will be and what won’t be accepted on the County’s website.
