[ARCHIVED] County to hold household hazardous waste, pharmaceutical collection events on April 13th and 14th

Orange County Seal

Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus, Sheriff Carl E. DuBois and Deputy Commissioner of Environmental Facilities and Services Pete Hammond have announced that the County will host two Household Hazardous Waste and Operation Safe Scripts Pharmaceutical Collection events for County businesses and residents from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th at Thomas Bull Memorial Park in Montgomery.

“These events provide a convenient opportunity for residents to dispose of hazardous household waste and expired or unwanted pharmaceuticals properly,” Neuhaus said.  “I hope that residents take advantage of the chance to clear their homes of unnecessary and potentially dangerous products.”

The April 13th event is for businesses, schools, farms and municipalities only. Registration is required and residents cannot attend. Cost will be determined by the vendor based on the type and amount of waste to be disposed of (up to 220 pounds).  Drop off times will be scheduled by the vendor.  Registration forms can be found by clicking on the “Household Hazardous Waste Information” tab at www.orangecountygov.com/efs and will be accepted until Friday, March 30th.

The April 14th event is free for Orange County residents who provide proof of residency (driver’s license or utility bill with Orange County address). The Orange County Sheriff’s Office will be on site collecting unwanted over the counter and prescription medications.  Businesses, schools, farms and municipalities must register for the Friday’s disposal and cannot attend the collection on Saturday.

If you have questions about either event, contact Ermin Siljkovic at 291-3246 or check log onto www.orangecountygov.com/efs and click on the household hazardous waste tab.
