Household Chemical Collection Day is next weekend

Celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend and clean out your basement, garage or shed next weekend!  The annual Cambria County Household Chemical Collection is on Saturday, May 19th.  It will be at Concurrent Technologies Corporation on Industrial Park Road in Johnstown between 9am and 1pm.  It’s your chance to get rid of excess paint, household cleaners, automotive fluids, and other household chemicals.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, an average home can easily accumulate 100 pounds of these products, typically found in kitchens, baths, garages, basements and garden sheds.  Since 2005, this Cambria County event has collected and safely disposed of more than a quarter of a million pounds of chemicals!.

The cost to safely dispose of materials at this collection is $3/gallon (a few exceptions apply).  Cash only.
