The facility will still be open to the public to drop off trash and routine recyclables, but unable to collect materials such as oil-based paints, herbicides, pesticides, drain cleaners, and other chemicals.

DPW anticipates a full seven-month Household Hazardous Waste collection schedule in 2019, running the first Friday/Saturday of each month from April to October. If there is a chance to reschedule a collection event before then DPW will notify the public.
