LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- There's a new vehicle around Lee County that will make it easier for you to dispose harmful chemicals that could hurt others or the environment.

The Household Chemical Waste Vehicle's next stop will be January 8 in Bonita Springs, on Bonita Beach Road, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

You can dispose leftover paints, cleaners, herbicides, pesticides, automotive fluids, pool chemicals, and electronics for free.
