By: Sharon Aron Baron

Get ready for more space in the garage because, in February, residents can safely dispose of all types of household hazardous materials that they’ve meant throw out, but haven’t had a chance.

The cities of Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Lauderdale Lakes, North Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Parkland and Tamarac have established a cooperative agreement that allows residents several opportunities to dispose of these materials at special one-day events throughout the year.
