“Instead of going to a landfill, this material will go to licensed hazardous waste facilities that have to treat it for the characteristics that it has,” said Cumberland County Recycling Coordinator Justin Miller.
You must pre-register to utilize the hazardous waste disposal program, and there are a limited number of spots. As of 4 p.m. on April 6, about 90 spots were remaining. The county plans to host another hazardous waste disposal event in June.
