Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event

By: Michelle Williams, Litter Control Committee Coordinator

The Orange County Landfill, with the help of the Litter Control Committee, hosted a Household Hazardous Waste Collection event on October 8 2022. This event provided the community with the opportunity to properly dispose of household hazardous wastes such as acids, fertilizers, antifreeze, paint, oil, pesticides, etc. Cars began lining up at the entrance to the Landfill at 7:30 a.m. At 8:00 a.m., volunteers and Landfill staff began directing traffic to allow not only the 158 cars there specifically to dispose of their hazardous waste materials, but for the rest that were there simply for the disposal of regular household trash. Clean Harbors collected 17,035 lbs. of materials in four (4) hours. This event would not be possible without the allocation of funds by the Board of Supervisors; Randy Clatterbuck, Landfill Manager, and the Landfill staff, by opening up their facility to Clean Harbors; and the volunteers, especially from the Orange County High School ’ s FFA (Future Farmers of America).
