Recycling events held in Hub City/Purvis

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The City of Hattiesburg, Forrest and Lamar counties and the Department of Environmental Quality all teamed up today to help folks dispose of some hazardous household waste.

The annual, "Right Way to Throw Away Day" gave residents a chance to get rid of old motor oil, tires, propane tanks and electronics.

Waste disposal experts were on hand at the Bobby Chain Airport and the Lamar County Multi-Purpose center to accept the products, where the purpose was all about recycling.
