The 2018 Spring Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Collection for Lancaster County will take place Saturday, May 19 from 9:00 am to 2 pm at the Kilmarnock Recycling Center.
This collaborative effort between Lancaster County, Virginia Cooperative Extension, and the Northern Neck Soil and Water Conservation District gives Lancaster County residents an opportunity to safely dispose of household chemicals and other substances that pose a danger to the environment if not disposed of properly. Please bring used gas and oil, oil based paints, pesticides, fertilizer, old cleaning products, solvents, anti-freeze and spent florescent bulbs. Do NOT bring: Latex paint (it can be dried out and disposed of in the garbage), ammunition, radioactive materials, tires, car batteries, medical waste, or prescription drugs (prescription drugs may be taken to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s office).
The electronic waste collection includes televisions, monitors, computers, cell phones, rechargeable batteries, gaming systems and other small electronics. Please do not bring appliances. Alkaline batteries may be disposed of in the trash, as they are not considered hazardous.
