Solid Waste Division launches Facebook page for HazMobile
Until recently, Martin County residents had direct access to the Martin County Solid Waste Division's HazMobile on seven different days every month in various locations throughout the county. Now, residents can find the HazMobile on Facebook anytime.
The purpose of the Facebook page is to better inform the public about ways to properly dispose of hazardous waste and reach more residents who are interested in utilizing the HazMobile.
From light bulbs to paint, fertilizers to pool chemicals, the HazMobile Facebook page provides disposal reminders for these common household items that should not end up in your trash can for regular waste pickup, and also features possible DIY and reuse projects for some of these items.
