IT'S TIME TO DO SOME SPRING CLEANING

There are many items in our homes that need to be disposed of; but are not suitable for weekly recycling or garbage services. Some of the items I'm talking about include household hazardous waste material like household cleaners, paints and stains. Rechargeable or Alkaline batteries, lawn and garden chemicals and much more.

Today in Milaca from 3-7 pm, residents of Mille Lacs county can bring their household hazardous materials, electronics and appliances to the Mille Lacs County Public Works Garage for proper disposal.

The Mille Lacs County Public Works Garage is located at 565 8th Street NE, Milaca, MN. 56353.
