Green Your Spring Cleaning

Green Clean Tues Tip insta
  • Look for EPA’s “Designed for the Environment” and “Safer Choice” labels.
  • Watch out for warning words such as “Danger,” “Caution,” “Warning,” and “Irritant” on conventional cleaners but if you have to use them, make sure the room is properly ventilated.
  • Consider making your own all-purpose cleaner with lemon juice and vinegar or baking soda.

Find our Tuesday Tips and other great info by following us on:

Recycle Your Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics in Prince George's!

Looking to dispose of those conventional cleaners? Cooking oil? Propane tanks? Old TV or computer screen? Look no further! The Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill will accept them free of charge, for all County residents! 

Did you know that you can recycle latex paint in your curbside recycling as long as it has been dried out/hardened and placed in a plastic bag?
