Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County will host a Hazardous Waste collection event for businesses, municipalities, school districts, and farms by appointment only on June 2nd at Orange County Transfer Station #3 in Port Jervis and Household Hazardous Waste and Operation Safe Scripts Pharmaceutical Collections for Orange County residents on June 3rd at Port Jervis High School (lower parking lot).

“These events provide an opportunity to dispose of unwanted and potentially hazardous chemicals that people often accumulate over the years in a safe, environmentally conscious way,” Orange County Executive Steven M.

The Friday, June 2nd event is for businesses, schools, farms, and municipalities only and will be held by appointment only.
