Right Way to Throw Away

Event Details

With several government and community organizations, the City of Hattiesburg will host Right Way to Throw Away Day on Saturday, May 4, 2024, with two drop-off locations at Bobby L. Chain Municipal Airport (29 Academy Drive, Hattiesburg, MS 39401) and Lamar County Multi-Purpose Center (99 Central Industrial Row, Purvis, MS 39475).

Between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., residents can properly dispose of household items like cleaners, transmission fluid, bleach and old electronics.

Additionally, at the Bobby L. Chain Airport location only, shredding services for sensitive documents and prescription waste disposal will be available. This service will be first-come, first-served until the truck is full.


To prevent these types of chemicals and products from ending up in our soil and water, this event helps place hazardous household items in the hands of people who know how to properly dispose of them.
