Waste Professionals Collected Hazardous Materials

While many of us prepare for Halloween this week, there may be something scarier than ghost and goblins lurking in your garage or under your kitchen sink.

The Warren County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day was held Oct. 27 in Bowling Green.

Hazardous waste professionals were on hand to accept items that may cause harm to people and animals if not disposed of properly.

Stan Reagan of Warren County Enviromental Planning and Assistance believes you may be surprised by the potentially dangerous items located in your home.

"A lot of things such as brake fluid, oil, pesticides and herbicides are especially dangerous if you have them in the garage where children play and they're not aware that these materials are poisonous," Reagan explained.

WKU sponsored the event, along with the Warren County fiscal court, local government agencies and area small businesses.

This year marked the eighth year for the collection.
