Pesticides • Used Oil • Stale Gasoline • Solvents • Fertilizers • Paint • Paint Thinners • Paint Strippers • Batteries • Furniture Polish • Brake Fluid • Engine Degreasers • Anti-Freeze • Pool Chemicals • Insecticides • Spot Removers

Waste tire amnesty will also be held on the same date, during the same hours and at both locations.  Walton County residents may bring up to 12 tires per residence.

Be advised:
• No gas cylinders or explosives will be accepted
