Reminder on Requirement for Trash Receptacles: According to Town Ordinance 200.3 (9) in part -- "No garbage, trash, or debris shall be placed out for collection except in proper storage receptacles. Where collection is from a sidewalk or alley, receptacles shall be placed out no earlier than the evening preceding the day of collection... Receptacles placed on a sidewalk or alley shall be promptly returned to the premises after collection... Storage receptacles shall be made of a durable material and shall be watertight with tight-fitting covers to control odor and prevent animal access."
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.
