Household hazardous waste

RU Recycling is encouraging the campus community to participate in the New River Valley Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day.

The event runs 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, at Dedmon Center parking lot Z.

"This is an opportunity for people who missed the recent Shred-A-Thon event on campus to get their personal documents shredded for free," said RU Recycling Coordinator Pavan Muddanna. "It also provides ways to get rid of their E-waste, old paints, automobile fluids, insecticides and other materials."

For a complete list of materials that will be accepted, visit the RU Recycling website.

The program is sponsored by the New River Resource Authority (NRRA). No commercial waste or commercial vehicles will be permitted.

"Radford University is happy to collaborate with NRRA for this great cause of helping the community to get rid of their household hazardous waste in a safe manner," Muddanna said.
