If you live in the city of Cape Girardeau and have hazardous waste you need to get rid of, mark your calendar!

On Saturday, October 10, the city will hold a collection event at the 4-H Building in Arena park from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

The event is free for residential trash and recycling customers.

Customers have to deliver their trash in leak proof containers.

The list of acceptable waste includes acids, adhesives, antifreeze, artist paint, auto wax, brake fluid, degreaser, fluorescent light bulbs, gasoline, kerosene, used motor oil and filters, and varnish. For a complete list, click here.

Paper shredding will also be available.
