Residents can take hazardous waste to 2 drop-off sites

April 22, 1994

County residents can get rid of chemicals or other hazardous materials they found during spring cleaning during the hazardous waste drop-off day tomorrow.

Waste products, which should be in their original containers for easy identification, will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Department of Public Works building on Harry S. Truman Parkway in Parole, or the Fire Department Headquarters on Veterans Highway in Millersville.

Officials said to be prepared for a 15-minute wait. They will check your driver's license to verify that you are a county resident.

Any chemicals or other materials that are not acceptable for normal trash pickup can be dropped off. But these materials will not be accepted: commercial waste, commercial medical waste, prescription drugs, explosives, smoke alarms and propane tanks.

Latex or water-based paint is not toxic and may be disposed of in your regular trash after it has dried. Used motor oil and antifreeze also will not be accepted, but can be dropped off at other locations in the county.

Call 222-6103 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. for locations.
