The last household chemical collection and computer recycling event in York County for this year is this Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
Residents will be asked to remain in their vehicles after they arrive to the drop-off at Operations Drive in Yorktown between Service and County drives, according to the Virginia Peninsulas Public Service Authority.
If residents are unable to make this event, they can take their household chemicals and computers to the Hampton drop-off event on Nov. 21 in the Coliseum parking lot. Chemical collection events will resume in 2021.
The Virginia Peninsulas Public Service Authority is a regional governmental organization providing solid waste management services to ten cities and counties in southeast Virginia.
