People will get the chance to get rid of those half-filled paint pots piling up in the corner of sheds, thanks to a waste amnesty at the recycling centre at Caister.
Toxic chemicals, such as paint, wood preservatives, insecticides, weed killers, varnishes and cleaning products can be disposed of at the centre in Pump Lane on September 23 and 24.
There will be a designated area at the recycling centre for people to take their hazardous waste, which will be identified by two waste specialists and a chemist and then sorted for correct transportation and disposal.
To help with this identification and sorting people are urged to:
? Keep containers clearly labelled
? Keep all products in their original containers and not mix them together
? Make sure products are properly sealed to avoid leakage
