Household hazardous waste
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) mobile household hazardous waste collection service will be in Cocke County on Saturday, April 27. Residents are encouraged to bring household hazardous waste - including cleaning fluids, pesticides, batteries and more to Lowe's on Epley Rd., Newport, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The local contact is Meka Henderson of Keep Cocke County Beautiful at (423) 623-1050. Since the program's inception in 1993, 350,000 Tennessee households have properly disposed of more than 22 million pounds of material. Items not accepted include ammunition, explosives, and alkaline batteries. When transporting materials to the site, place containers in sturdy boxes lined with newspaper to prevent spills and be sure to keep materials away from children and pets.
