LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Have you tried clearing out your garage but had to stop because you didn't know how to dispose of something safely?

Well, you're in luck. Angelina Beautiful Clean, Lockheed Martin and the City of Lufkin are teaming up for a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.

Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM at Lufkin Middle School you can bring all your junk that requires a special method of disposal.

"We're going to have at least 50 volunteers collecting materials from pesticides to paint to things you don't know what to do with. Your white goods, appliances, even microwaves," said Amanda Anderson, Interim Director of Angelina Beautiful Clean.

Everything will be disposed of in the greenest ways possible. The event is part of the 'Think global - Act local' initiative.
