"Household Chemical" Collection Recap for 2010

Thanks to VPSSA and 4700 residents of James City County, Williamsburg, York County, Poquoson, and Hampton, more than 268,000 pounds of household chemicals did NOT go to area landfills.

In addition, 103,500 pounds of computers and other electronic equipment was properly recycled and didn't get shipped to those small towns in China where the local kids pull them apart. Thanks to the 1500 residents who dropped off their computers on VPSSA's scheduled computer recycling days, these kids were not exposed to the toxic metals in our much-loved computers.
