Free Mid-Shore Household Chemical Disposal and Electronics Recycling Day

Clean out the attic, the garage, the basement and the spare bedroom and get ready for the Midshore Regional Recycling Program’s spring event on Saturday, April 24. This year’s location is in the parking lot of the Queen Anne’s County Department of Public Works near Centreville. The event will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine.

Once again residents of Queen Anne’s, Kent, Caroline and Talbot Counties may bring their household hazardous waste for proper disposal and consumer electronics for recycling to the Centreville location. There is no charge for dropping off material for this one day only event, but residents are asked to pre-arrange for large loads.

Explosives, ammunition, medical waste, radioactive materials, picric acid, compressed gas cylinders, asbestos, smoke detectors, business, industrial or commercial farm wastes, appliances of any size, power tools and latex paint will not be accepted at this site on April 24. Latex paint should be reused or solidified with an absorbent such as kitty litter, dirt or mulch and disposed in the regular trash.

This event is sponsored by the Midshore Regional Recycling Program, which includes Queen Anne’s, Kent, Caroline and Talbot counties, and a Maryland Department of the Environment “eCycle” grant. For more information about this event and to learn more about area recycling, visit or call 410-758-6605.
