The Riverside County Waste Management Department has scheduled a free household hazardous-waste collection event for Saturday (12/13) in Indio at the Date Festival Fairgrounds. The event starts at 9 a.m. and is open to all Riverside County residents.

Limit the amount of waste transported to no more than 15 gallons and no more than 125 pounds maximum per vehicle.  Individual containers should be no larger than five gallons and nor weigh more than 50 pounds.

The collection will not accept explosives, radioactives, ammunition, asbestos, compressed gas cylinders over 40 pounds, or infectious or medical waste other than sharps.

The event is subject to cancellation during inclement weather or for other hazardous conditions as determined by the county. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Date Festival Fairgrounds, 46-350 Arabia St., Gate 6.  For more information, contact Riverside County Waste Management Department at (951) 486-3200 or (800) 304-2226, or http://www.rcwaste.org/
