Angelina Beautiful/Clean will host their Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on March 4, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. located at Regional Recycling Center, 500 Southpark Dr., Lufkin, TX 75904.
“It is Angelina Beautiful/Clean’s largest annual service project, and is a fantastic opportunity for community members to properly dispose of material that is considered hazardous to our natural environment,” says Emily Thornton, Executive Director of AB/C. “We encourage anyone in our Deep East Texas region to participate in hopes of cutting down on illegal dumping and recycling some of the material we receive. We believe that HHW is a true testament to our mission of educating and empowering East Texans to take responsibility for enhancing our community environment.”
For more than 30 years, Angelina Beautiful/Clean, a non-profit organization, has kept true to its mission of educating and empowering East Texans to take responsibility for enhancing their community environment. Each year, Beautiful/Clean and its proud community members work hard to maintain, enhance, and preserve our part of Texas. They want to make Angelina County a beautiful place to live, play, and work. One way they make this a reality is by hosting events like Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.
“HHW is a fantastic resource for our community,” Thornton says. “It’s a free resource and allows community members to properly dispose of material and get it off their hands. Having this collection each year gives AB/C the opportunity to empower our community to make the right decision and properly dispose of material that can be hazardous to our natural environment.”
