METRO: HAZARDOUS WASTE INFORMATION FAIR HELPS SMALL BUSINESSES FIND PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

 SEATTLE, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Small-business owners will save time, money and hassle by attending the Hazardous Waste Information Fair April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the South Park Community Center, 8319 8th Ave. S., Seattle, Metro said today. Those attending the fair will receive one-time rebates on hazardous waste disposal fees and will be able to talk face-to-face with government representatives in a safe environment -- outside the shop.
 One South Park business owner speaks for many when he says, "We're tired of hearing what we have to do. We need to find out how." The fair promises "how-to's" from the private sector and from government agencies, including the Washington State Department of Ecology, the Seattle Fire Department, Metro, the Seattle-King County Health Department, the Seattle Engineering Department, Puget Sound Air Pollution Control Agency, the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries and the Industrial Materials Exchange. On-going mini-talks will address these common concerns: what materials are hazardous; how to dispose of unknown materials; what can go in the dumpster; what can go down the drain and recycling opportunities.
 The South Park Environmental Co-op is planning the fair with support from Metro under the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program. A number of local businesses are formally endorsing the event.
 To obtain rebate and free service coupons, or for more information on the fair, call John Beal, South Park Environmental Co-op, 206-762-3640.
