Yesterday, I had an email exchange with a County resident interested in participating in this Sunday's Household Hazardous Waste collection event in Silver Spring. He lives in Rockville, and wanted driving directions.
I was happy to provide the directions. Given his Rockville location, I also gave him information about the Hazardous Waste drop-off point we have at the Solid Waste Transfer Station, which is available daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The resident replied:
I thought they only take hazmats on days they announce.
Not anymore! Thanks for the opportunity to clarify this information. We are pleased to have a permanent Hazardous Waste facility at the Transfer Station, making drop-off convenient any day of the week. And, there's an added bonus to using the Transfer Station drop-off: if you have any paint needs, take a few minutes to "shop" in the "Paint Store" we have there. The selection changes all the time, but the "price" does not! Choose from primers, interior paint, exterior paint and related products in a range of colors and finishes, all available at no charge to you.
