Household Hazardous Waste Pickup
Sep 19 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Lake County Solid Waste is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials in a safe and environmentally conscious way at a collection event.
The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting the items from 9 a.m. – noon on Thursday, Sept. 19 at parking lot of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Substation, located at 15855 SR-50, Clermont.
Staff will offer convenient drive-through disposal to Lake County residents only, and will be on-hand to collect small quantities of waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint and related products, cleaning solutions, motor oil and gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs and small propane tanks. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.
Excessive amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted due to limited space in the mobile unit. If residents have large quantities of items to dispose of, a drop-off can be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility, 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.
For more information about this event, or to find out about future collection events, visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/hazardouswaste or call Lake County Solid Waste at 352-343-3776.

Become A Hospice Volunteer
Sep 20 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Do Something Good for Yourself. Become a Cornerstone Hospice Volunteer.
Experts agree. Volunteering is good for your body and your mind.
Cornerstone Hospice invites north Lake County residents to the September volunteer training to learn how they can help others while helping themselves.
Cornerstone Hospice volunteers may visit patients at home or in a facility to offer friendly conversation and give family members a break to run errands. Cornerstone volunteers also help out in the office, walk patients’ dogs or honor fellow veterans in Cornerstone’s care.
Hours are flexible and volunteers can choose the areas they want to work including Tavares, Eustis, Mount Dora and Leesburg. Bilingual volunteers are especially appreciated.
All Cornerstone Hospice volunteers participate in training classes and the next class will be held later this month in Tavares.
Friday, September 20
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Friday Night Naturalist
Sep 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Invasive plants and animals are a fact of life in Florida, as non-native species continue to arrive and flourish. What do they look like? Why are they a problem? What can you do to control them? “Know Your Invasives” is the next topic for Friday Night Naturalist at the Trout Lake Nature Center.
On Friday, September 20 at 6 PM, learn from the experts about what is being done locally to meet the invasive threats (both plant and animal) to our natural systems. This program will feature samples of plants as well as animal photos or videos to help you learn to identify invasives or evidence of their damage.
If you think you may have an invasive plant, gather a small sample and bring it to the program in a sealed bag for identification and information on how to treat it. Sealed bags are required to limit the spread of any invasive via spores. In addition, information on the Clean, Play, Go program and the IveGot1.org will be given to help you understand how you can help make a difference whenever you visit a natural area or find an invasive.
The Trout Lake Nature Center is located at 520 East CR 44, Eustis. Friday Night Naturalist programs are held monthly on the third Friday. These programs are free to attend but a $5 donation is suggested to support this independent non-profit’s future programs. For more information on the program, call 352-357-7536 or email tlnc.info@gmail.com
