Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event Is Saturday

Paris, Tenn.-Henry County Solid Waste and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Division of Solid Waste Management are preparing for the annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. The event will be held this Saturday May 7th from 8am to 1pm at the Henry County Recycling Center, located at 450 Recycling Drive, off East Wood Street in Paris. The event is free and open to any household.

Henry County Solid Waste Manager Ron Watkins said the mobile collection program was established to provide a safe means of disposal for household hazardous wastes. There are many reasons to properly dispose of household hazardous waste including that improper storage of hazardous products may increase risk of poisoning or injury.

Also Watkins said, disposing of hazardous materials in ordinary trash may injure sanitation workers because some products are chemically incompatible and may cause fires in dumpsters, or garbage trucks. Examples include household cleaners, oil based paints, aerosols, pesticides, rechargeable batteries, used automotive fluids, pool chemicals, and other products no longer usable.

Additionally old mercury thermometers, TVs, computer equipment, and other household electronic equipment will be accepted. Usual recyclables such as used motor oil, antifreeze, aluminium, scrap metal, old appliances, cardboard, paper, and number 1 and 2 plastics will be accepted also.

Tires will not be accepted at this year’s event, but can be taken to the Landfill for disposal. Medical and infectious waste, ammunition, explosives, radioactive waste are excluded in what is accepted as well.

During this time frame, intervention, treatment, and recovery programs have expanded such as an increase in permanent prescription drug collection boxes from 36 to 155, including ones at the Paris Police Department and Henry County Sheriff’s Office.

Call Before You Dig Dinner

Paris, Tenn.- Over 120 individuals from different counties and communities attended the Tennessee811 Interactive program and dinner at Paris Landing State Park. 

Jason Frier directed the program which included information about pipelines across the country and specifically in Tennessee.  Frier said, “This is the fourth of over 20 meetings we will be conducting across the state of Tennessee.” Kathy Quartermaine, marketing specialist for Tennessee811, helped with registration of the participants for the event.  Historically the first oil well production was in Titusville, PA. in 1859. 

Today 2.6 million miles of pipelines our found across our country reaching to all corners of our country and also includes the Alaskan transcontinental pipeline. Early pipelines were made of wood much like whiskey barrels that were held together with metal straps.  The program PIPE, Partners In Protecting Everyone, emphasizes the “Call Before You Dig”.   Designed for excavators, contractors, emergency response personnel, and private citizens, the program increased awareness of the need to “call before you dig”. 

According to Frier, “Every minute of every day someone inadvertently cuts and utility line of some sort.”  Costly as the result may be the greatest emphasis is the safety of all citizens.  Even if you think you know where lines are located you should call 811 and get lines marked before you start to dig.  The program was sponsored locally by ANR pipeline at Cottage Grove and Paris Henry County Utility District.

Children's Mental Health Awareness Week

Paris, Tenn.-This is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. The Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, in partnership with clinicians and practitioners across the state, are excited about the future for our children. We are working hard every day for the children in our state. Our children have more hope than ever before to reach their full potential which includes proper mental health.

Some children are born with mental health challenges. It is part of their DNA. While for others their condition may be the result of a lack of proper nurturing or perhaps the consequences of being exposed to traumatic experiences.

We see far too many young Tennesseans put themselves at risk of injury, arrest and even death, often times due to an undiagnosed behavioral health condition.  It’s our duty to offer them a chance to succeed, as early in life as possible, to help ensure they lead a life with boundless opportunities.

When mental health issues are not dealt with, children can easily become depressed, have anxiety issues, and stop performing well in school, or have little or no interest in activities. They tend to have low self-esteem and struggle in the educational environment.

Research into the science of the mind is revealing so much hope. For instance, we now know that early intervention and seeing a mental health professional as soon as symptoms present themselves can go a long way to ensure the health and wellbeing of a young person later in life.

If given the opportunity, and with a support system in place, we can diagnose and treat their underlying mental health condition and improve their chances of staying in school, finding meaningful work and leading the most productive and fullest life possible.

Join with us this month to help ensure our children don’t slip through the cracks. Our children deserve a life full of love, harmony, and all the hope and possibility we can imagine, no matter the obstacles or impediments.
