Time to get rid of those old hazardous materials and chemicals that pile up in the garage or in the back of cupboards! Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day is this Saturday, November 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Stadium Parking Lot. This event is for East Baton Rouge Parish residential waste only so commercial waste is not allowed. Items accepted range from cleaning products to batteries to cooking oil.
