How Can You Dispose of Prohibited Items in Smyrna?
Since Georgia does not have specific laws in place to enforce the appropriate disposal of household hazardous waste. This means that Smyrna residents have to take matters into their own hands. The local laws specify that paint, wood stains, lacquers, and other wet hazardous waste products can be disposed of along with household trash, providing these items are dried out first. Residents can saturate their hazardous liquid materials with cat litter, newspaper, or sawdust, then seal it in a strong plastic garbage bag and place it in a bin with their normal household trash. Unfortunately, this is not a great way to preserve the environment. Which is why residents of Smyrna are encouraged to seek local resources to dispose of these items properly.
Before disposing of unused chemicals that can still be used, residents can place an ad in a local newspaper or online media source to inquire if someone else may have a use for the items. This would eliminate the risk of these items ending up in a landfill to leech in the ground. Many hazardous waste facilities even offer residents a chance to obtain free unused paint and other similar items in an effort to reduce hazardous waste. Broken electronics, furniture, and other unusable items can be taken to one of the recycling centers in Smyrna.
