SHEPHERDSVILLE – One item not taken during annual junk days is household chemicals.
If solid waste coordinator Larry Hatfield is successful in securing a grant, Bullitt County may be host to its first household chemical disposal day.
Hatfield said he believes residents would be very pleased to have such an opportunity.
He anticipated having it over the course of five hours on a Saturday. A company specializing in chemical waste disposal would handle the operation.
There is no way to know the number of participants but Hatfield felt it would be popular.
Latex paint and motor oil would still not be acceptable.
It would be for Bullitt County residents only and the location would have to be something accessible to the entire community.
The court members approved Hatfield pursuing the state grant funding.
County junk days are planned for Saturday, April 13, and Saturday, April 27.
The deposit sites will be at Lebanon Junction Elementary, Shepherdsville Elementary and Nichols Elementary on April 13.
On April 27, dumpsters will be at North Bullitt and Bullitt East High Schools.
The collection sites will be open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
No hazardous wastes and no household garbage.
It is for Bullitt County residents only. ID will be required.
Hillview will host junk days on Saturday, April 20, for its residents.
