Registration open for paint & chemical collection event.

Online pre-registration is now available for Milton's first household paint and chemical collection event, to be held Saturday, Aug. 3 at Bell Memorial Park thanks to Milton Grows Green. To register online, click here. Please be as specific as possible when estimating weight to be dropped off. Online registration, which is required to bring materials to the event, closes Tuesday, July 30. However, due to budget restraints, registration may close early once the maximum amount of material is registered. Milton residents only (no businesses) may drop off: Latex and oil-based paints (quantities limited) Lawn and garden chemicals Cleaning products Fluorescent bulbs Batteries "We are planning to serve as many residents as possible, but since this is our first event, we have a limited budget and can only collect as much as funding allows," said Cindy Eade, environmental sustainability coordinator for the City of Milton. "Therefore, registration will be first-come, first served. "The online registration process helps us stay within budget and ensures we serve the most residents." For directions to Bell Memorial Park, located at 15245 Bell Park Road in Milton, click here. For more information, contact Eade at 678-242-2509 or
