Queen Anne’s County Clean Up Project kicks off April 16
CENTREVILLE — Help Queen Anne’s County celebrate Earth Day by joining in on April 23, 24 and 25 in the County Clean Up Project 2016. Individual, group and business participation is welcome.
Queen Anne’s County is partnering with Infinity Recycling in Millington on the County Clean Up Project. Participants can collect clean recyclable plastic bottles, aluminum cans and glass bottles in a clear bag and non-recyclable trash in a black trash bag.
Recycling can be easy if you remember, “When in doubt, throw it out.” Bags will be picked up by the Public Works Department on April 25 starting at 1 p.m.
Free gloves, trash bags and reflective vests will be available throughout the county beginning April 11 at designated collection sites. Participants can sign up for an area and pick up supplies at Queen Anne’s County Public Works, Finance Office and Planning and Zoning, Kent Island Library, Centreville Library and Chesapeake Heritage and Visitor Center. Recycling guidelines will be available where supplies are available.
Other dates in April to remember: April 16 Household Hazardous Waste, Latex Paint and Electronics Recycling Drop-Off Day at the Queen Anne’s County Public Works Facility, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 18-22 Make every day Earth Day! Helpful hints and tip videos from the Kennard Elementary Environmental Club and the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center on how you can recycle, reduce, reuse! Videos will air daily on QAC TV and County Facebook pages.
