The Recycling Division of Worcester County Public Works, in conjunction with Maryland Environmental Services and the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), will conduct Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and E-Cycling (electronics recycling) Collection Day on Saturday, April 23, 2016, from 10 am – 2 pm at the Ocean City Park & Ride Lot in West Ocean City.
Worcester County is hosting HHW and E-cycling to commemorate and extend the Earth Day celebration, which takes place the day prior to the event.
Drop off HHW, including pesticides, pool chemicals, gas and other fuels, oil-based paints, thinners and everyday hazardous waste accumulating in and around the home for safe disposal. Electronic items, such as computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, radios, televisions and VCRs, will be collected and later recycled.
HHW and E-cycling is open at no charge to Worcester County residents only. A representative from MDE will be on site checking vehicle registration. Clean Ventures of Baltimore will be responsible for the safe disposal of all hazardous waste collected. The electronics will be shipped to an electronics recycler for dismantling. For more information, contact Worcester County Recycling Manager Ron Taylor at (410) 632-3177.
