Rid your home of harmful chemicals
It's still hurricane season, so make sure to properly safeguard chemicals in your home and storage spaces in the event of a storm. Families usually store chemicals such as fertilizers, paints, automotive fluids, pesticides, and cleaners in garages, sheds, kitchens, and bathrooms. If a hurricane's damaging rain were to flood your home and break these containers, dangerous chemicals could endanger public health. Now's the time to rid your home of chemicals you don't use anymore. Take them to the Household Electronics and Chemical Collection Center (HEC3), operated by Pinellas County Utilities. Simply drop off your hazardous chemicals for free at 2855 109th Ave N., St. Petersburg. The HEC3 Center can't take automotive/marine batteries, biological/infectious waste, empty paint cans, explosives, fire extinguishers, propane tanks, radioactive waste or smoke detectors.
