The City of Hattiesburg is partnering with Lamar County Mississippi, Forrest County and several community agencies to host the Right Way to Throw Away Day on Saturday, April 21, with two dropoff locations at Bobby L. Chain Municipal Airport (Academy Drive, Hattiesburg, MS 39401) and Lamar County Multi-Purpose Center (99 Central Industrial Row, Purvis, MS 39475). Between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., residents can properly dispose household items like cleaners, transmission fluid, bleach and old electronics.
