Household hazards, old electronics recycled

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Any Tennessee resident can recycle old pesticides and other hazardous materials in Jackson on Saturday. An event behind the West Tennessee Farmers Market will also accept electronics, such as old computers and electronic device rechargers.

Wendy Braxter-Rhyne of the city stormwater program told the Jackson Sun such events help keep hazardous materials out of streams and landfills.

The event, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., is free.

Among household items recycled will be fluorescent light tubes, oil-based paints and thinners, drain and oven cleaners and metal polishes.

Used automotive oil, fluids and polishes are also accepted.
