Spring is here and its cleaning time!!   Like many others I’m guessing you have or are going to clean out that garage or basement.  When this happens, we usually find old chemicals or fluids, batteries or other items that are deemed hazardous waste.  So what do you do with them?  Don’t throw them out in the trash.  That contaminates the landfill.  Instead…

On Saturday, August 13, 2016 from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm The Wayne County department of Public Service will be sponsoring the 2016 Hazardous Waste Collection and Electronics Recycling event.  It will be held at the Westland Shopping Center behind JC Penney as it has in the past. For more information regarding acceptable items please contact the Wayne County Department of Public Services at (734) 326-3936.

Items that are being collected include, floor wax, floor care products, carpet cleaner, furniture polish, bathroom cleaners, stain removers, household paints stains and dyes, glues, auto batteries, mercury thermometers, fluorescent bulbs, fertilizers and pesticides, anti-freeze, motor oil, gasoline, cellphones, TV’s, computer monitors and printers.


Another successful event was held.  Over 500 vehicles were served between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm. The collection filled and disposed of twenty, 30 yard, one, 60 yard and two 80 yard roll-off dumpsters of hazardous materials.

Great Job Westland residents!!!
