Mayor Craig A. Moe is pleased to announce that the City is now offering residents another way to reduce their refuse and help the environment. Effective immediately, residents of the City of Laurel will be able to recycle their CD and DVDs at a drop-off box in front of the Department of Public Works, 305 First Street. The green container is located directly in front of the main entrance and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The CDs and DVDs collected will be processed at Recycle America’s Baltimore plant and used to make automotive industry parts; office equipment; alarm boxes and panels; street lights and electrical cable insulation to name a few.
Mayor Moe would also like to remind residents that the City-administered recycling program also allows residents to recycle fluorescent/CFL light bulbs, as well as household batteries at no cost. These services are in addition to the weekly curbside collection.
Any questions regarding the current program can be directed to Public Works at 301-725-0088.
