CENTREVILLE — April’s Week­long Earth Day Cleanup event was a great suc­cess thanks to the many res­i­dents who chipped in and helped, said Todd Mohn, director of Queen Anne’s County Pub­lic Works.

“Vol­un­teers cleaned up 137 miles of county roads, parks, schools, and trails,” Mohn said at the June 14, Queen Anne’s County Com­mis­sion meet­ing.

A total of 3.45 tons of trash and re­cy­clables were col­lected. Of the 3.45 tons col­lected, a total of 2.51 tons (5,020 lbs.) was trash, 0.61 tons (1,220 lbs.) was re­cy­clables, 0.23 tons (450 lbs.) were tires and 0.10 tons (100 lbs.) were metal items. Some of the more un­usual items col­lected in­cluded a cow staunch, ra­zor scooter, printer, metal stool, metal sign sup­ports and car­pet pad­ding.

The Mid-Shores’ Spring House­hold Haz­ardous Waste event was held in Queen Anne’s County last spring and brought in a record 560 ve­hi­cles with waste such as paint and elec­tron­ics, said Mohn. The next House­hold Haz­ardous Waste event will be Nov. 5, at the Mid-Shore Re­gional Land­fill in Eas­ton. Mid­Shore County House­hold Haz­ardous Waste events are spon­sored by Mary­land En­vi­ron­men­tal Ser­vice.

“We have be­gun plan­ning our fall clean-up event to be held Nov. 19 and 20,” Mohn said. The fall clean-up event will be just like the spring event, with the county con­tribut­ing gear such as gloves, bags and re­flec­tive vests.
