RICHLAND -- Richland residents are being asked to store hazardous household wastes temporarily until the city can find a way to dispose of them.
The city has placed a temporary ban on accepting several types of waste after a fire June 27 at its hazardous waste landfill.
The affected wastes include paints, waste oil, solvents, antifreeze, pesticides, aerosols, pool chemicals and cleaners.
Those wastes are not to be put into the garbage or recycling containers, according to a city news release.
