Warren County’s Household Hazardous Waste Day event is officially set for June 3 at Sherman Avenue Elementary School.

The Board of Supervisors during its Monday meeting voted to hire hazardous waste contractor Tradebe Environmental Services for a third year at a 5-percent increase. They also voted to purchase food for volunteers working the event.

Held each year in June, Household Hazardous Waste Day is an opportunity for residents to dispose of any items that can’t be recycled or thrown away with household garbage.
