Looking around your garage or shed, you might find some items that have been there for a long time. Things like paint and old car batteries that you can't just put out in the trash can build up over time.

If you have had a can of paint for over 5 years, it's time to think about when you will use it again. Some types of latex or acrylic paint could last up to 10 years, but they have to be stored correctly.

Paint isn't the only hazardous material you might have laying around the house. In Lufkin, there is an event coming up so you can dispose of these materials correctly.
