Are you looking for somewhere to dispose hazardous waste items you may pulled out from under the sink or around the garage after your spring cleaning?

The city is hosting a hazardous waste disposal event Saturday at the Central States Fairgrounds. Disposal of your items it totally free of charge, and it gives you the chance to get rid of those items without putting them in the landfill and without harming the environment.

Solid Waste Division Superintendent Karl Merbach says, "All of the things that you have built up in your basement, your garage, under your sink in your kitchen, all those household chemicals, the cleaners, the disinfectants, the oil-based paints, this is the proper way to dispose of them."

You can dispose of your items between 8 and 1 Saturday. For a full list of what you can drop off, you can visit rapidcityrecycles.org.
