Sonora, CA – This weekend, grab those old paint, gasoline, and cleaners and dispose of them for free in Sonora, but only by appointment.

The annual Household Hazardous Waste and Paint Collection event hosted by Tuolumne County Solid Waste is this Saturday, May 18th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is being held at the Cal Sierra Recycling Center at 14909 Camage Avenue in Sonora. Those dropping off household hazardous items must enter Camage Avenue off of Nugget Boulevard, as left turns into the facility will not be allowed for safety reasons.
