TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County will hold a one-day household hazardous waste collection event in White Marsh later this month.
On Sunday, April 24, county residents may bring household hazardous waste (HHW) items to a one-day collection event scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Eastern Sanitary Landfill, located at 6259 Days Cove Road in White Marsh. The event is hosted by the Baltimore County Bureau of Solid Waste Management in cooperation with the police and fire departments.
Baltimore County residents may bring household paints and chemicals, lawn and garden chemicals, automotive fluids, cleaning solvents, waste fuel, swimming pool chemicals, rechargeable batteries, prescription medicines, mercury thermometers and thermostats, fluorescent light bulbs, fireworks, and ammunition.
