(Lawrenceville, Ga., April 9, 2018) - Attend a Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources spring workshops to learn tips for spring cleaning and maintenance for both the inside and outside of your home.

At the Spring Cleaning Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Management Workshop attendees will learn how to identify, manage and dispose of household hazardous wastes like cleaners, batteries, lawn care products, oils, paints and pesticides instead of allowing them to collect, posing a risk to the health of their family and the environment. The HHW Management Workshop will be held April 12 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Lilburn City Hall, located at 340 Main St. in Lilburn.

The Rain Garden Workshop (outdoors) will teach attendees about the practical and aesthetic benefits of having a rain garden. Through this hands-on learning experience, attendees will also learn the most beneficial locations to place their rain garden. The Rain Garden Workshop will be held April 17 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett Tech Horticultural Garden, located at 5150 Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville.
