If your garage is anything like mine, there's a good chance there are containers of various fluids sitting around from projects gone by. Leftover paint from repainted rooms, oil, antifreeze, and brake fluid from routine vehicle maintenance, you name it. They're all fluids you know you couldn't pour down a drain, or throw away with the regular trash, so there they sit in their containers tucked in the corner of the garage. If that sounds familiar, and you live in Henderson, here's your chance to get rid of it properly.
