“This event gives residents a way to support the City’s sustainability efforts,” Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch said. “In addition to electronics recycling, which we held last weekend, this is one of the most popular programs we offer.”

The city said they would accept the following materials, oil and latex paints, stains, paint thinner, automobile batteries, household batteries, motor oil, antifreeze, gasoline, diesel, household cleaners, pool chemicals, household chemicals, pesticides, flammables, corrosives. 

They will not accept any agricultural wastes, bio-hazardous/bio-medical waste, ammunition, explosives, radioactive materials, smoke detectors and cylinders of acetylene, oxygen, carbon dioxide, helium and refrigerant gases.

“It’s important that we collect waste that could otherwise end up in a landfill,” said Dunwoody Community Development Director Richard McLeod. “This event is a priority for the Dunwoody Community Development Department and the Dunwoody Sustainability Committee.” 

Dunwoody said people would need proof of residency for the event and that disposal amounts are limited.
