Hazardous Waste Drop-Off

From the Baltimore Department of Public Works:

Baltimore City’s next Hazardous Waste Drop-Off event at the Northwest Citizen Convenience Center will take place on April 27 and 28, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Center is located at 2840 Sisson Street.

This event provides an opportunity for Baltimore City residents to dispose of hazardous household materials such as oil-based paints, pesticides, herbicides, household batteries, drain cleaners, gasoline, pool chemicals and many other items. However, latex paint is not classified as a hazardous material; it can be dried up and the cans put out for regular trash collection.

Materials that will not be collected include asbestos, ammunition, industrial and medical wastes and radioactive materials, including smoke alarms with a radioactive symbol.

Residents may be asked for proof of city residency, e.g. a driver’s license, telephone bill or tax bill, before they can drop off any hazardous items. Residents must also be able to identify the material.

This event is for household hazardous waste materials ONLY. Businesses and commercial users should contact a vendor for proper hazardous waste disposal. Commercial vehicles are not allowed at the facility.

City residents should look for their 2012 DPW calendar next month which will include all of next year’s haz mat events. The next scheduled event will take place Friday and Saturday, May 25 and 26, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.. To find out more about the proper disposal of your household hazardous waste, go to
