The city of Cape Girardeau will collect household hazardous waste today from 9 a.m. to noon at the Arena Park 4-H shelter. Cape Girardeau city residents can drop off hazardous waste ranging from paint to pesticides, public works director Tim Gramling said. The city has hired Inter-Rail Systems Inc. to handle and safely dispose of or recycle the collected material. Last year, 282 people dropped off 32,950 pounds of materials at the annual hazardous waste collection day, Gramling said.
