This year marks the 30th annual Operation Clean House, a free event to help Washington County residents get rid of hazardous household and automotive goods without harming others or the enviornment.

Items accepted at this location include electronics and hazardous household waste such as cleaners, yard care products, oil based paints, pharmaceuticals and fluorescent bulbs.
Dewey residents can drop off unwanted items on Ninth Street, two miles east of U.S. Highway 75.
Items accepted at this location include motor oil, antifreeze, automotive batteries, tires and appliances.
