Dozens of residents in the Hattiesburg and Purvis areas brought in old paint, used motor oil and worn-out tires to be disposed of or recycled in the proper way Saturday. They took those and other types of household hazardous waste items to the Chain Airport in Hattiesburg or the Lamar County Multi-Purpose Center to be processed as part of the Right Way to Throw Away Day.
The event is a partnership among Forrest and Lamar counties, Hattiesburg, Petal, The Pine Belt Solid Waste Authority, USM and the Mississippi Dept. of Environmental Quality.
"We've been real fortunate that the Dept. of Environmental Quality has been able to help provide money for the City of Hattiesburg, Forrest County and USM and our other partners to match the monies that we put in to help divert a bunch of waste that would normally end up in the landfill," said Chris Bowen, Dist. 5 supervisor for Forrest County.
"It keeps a lot of these things out of the streams and creeks, like Gordon's Creek and the Leaf River," said John Brown, assistant to Mayor Johnny Dupree of Hattiesburg.
This was the sixth year for the event under the current partnership.
