Orange County will host "Household Hazardous Waste and Operation Safe Scripts Pharmaceutical Collections" for its residents on June 1 and June 2 in Port Jervis.

“These events provide an opportunity to dispose of unwanted and potentially hazardous chemicals that people often accumulate over the years in a safe, environmentally conscious way,” said Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus. “I hope that residents take advantage of this cost free opportunity to clear their homes of unnecessary and potentially dangerous products.”

According to the announcement made by Neuhaus, Sheriff Carl E. DuBois and Deputy Commissioner of Environmental Facilities and Services Pete Hammond, the June 1 event is for businesses, schools, farms and municipalities only.

It will be held at Orange County Transfer Station No. 3 at 86 Tow Path Road in Port Jervis.

Pre-registration is required and the cost for disposal will be determined by the vendor based on the type and amount of waste to be disposed of (up to 220 pounds).

Drop off times will be scheduled by the vendor.

Registrations will be accepted until Friday, May 18.

Free for residentsThe June 2 event is free for Orange County residents with proof of residency (driver’s license or utility bill with Orange County address) and will be held at the lower parking lot of Port Jervis High School, which is located at 10 Route 209.

Deputies from the County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to collect unwanted over the counter and prescription medication.

Businesses, schools, farms and municipalities must register for the June 1 event and may not attend the June 2 event collection.
