For more information on Trash Collection, click here.

Disposal of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs (CFLs) -- These long-lived, energy efficient light bulbs are being used more and more in our homes and businesses.  One of the few disadvantages of CFLs is that they contain small amounts of mercury, an element known to be harmful to human health and the environment.   If you break a CFL, place all the cleaned-up material in a sealed plastic bag and either put it into an outside trash container for the next normal trash collection or, if convenient, take it to the Mt. Hope Community (Recycling) Center (104 Pushaw Station Rd.,Sunderland, MD) where they accept CFLS year round.  Light bulbs of any sort are not acceptable items for recycling with the Town's Recycling contractor.

If you would like a receptacle for your recycling material, please complete the simple online form.  Please allow at least TWO WEEKS for delivery of your container.   Please, only one bin per household.  To access the online form -- click here .  

Once we receive your form, Public Works personnel will deliver a container to your home. Again, we encourage everyone to recycle and join us in the program. See table below for specific guidelines and instructions regarding what materials may be recycled, preparation for recycling and what items are unacceptable. Thank you in advance for participating in this very worthwhile program! 

Attn: Chesapeake Village Residents --  your trash collection day is Monday and your recycle collection day is Thursday.

 

Attn: Richfield Station Residents --  your trash collection day is Tuesday and your recycle collection day is Friday.
