The free collection continues from 9a.m. to 3p.m. Saturday at the Centre County Solid Waste Authority in Benner Township - right off route 26 near the Nittany Mall.
Volunteers will be on hand to safely dispose of many hazardouns materials. They will be accepting insecticides, weed killers, pool chemicals, cleaners, poisons, corrosives, flammables, oil-based paints, cfl bulbs and most other hazardous chemicals from households only.

They won't  accept things like latex paint, batteries or medications.  Organizers hope keep about 50,000 pounds of hazardous waste materials from getting into regular landfills with this special weekend drive
