Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

On Saturday, Sedgwick County will hold a remote collection, providing a drop-off spot in east Wichita from 9 a.m. -1 p.m. 

The Sedgwick County Household Hazardous Waste Facility is open all year, Saturday's event will provide an additional drop-off site for residents in east Wichita so they don't have to travel to the main location. 

Wichita residents can drop off items like paint, batteries, and motor oil for no charge. 

The collection will take place in the Textron Beechcraft Parking Lot located at 10059 E. Central in Wichita. 

County leaders hope the event will encourage residents to dispose of harmful waste properly instead of flushing it, throwing it away, or pouring it down a drain.
