Inkster officials have urged residents to take advantage of the upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection set for Aug. 8 this year.
As the social distancing and precautions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic have kept residents at home, many have been occupied cleaning and sorting. To that end, those hazardous waste products need disposal, prompting Wayne County to set up the area wide collection from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Westland Shopping Center parking lot, behind the JCPenney store.
Only household generated products from Wayne County residents will be accepted. Items that will not be accepted include commercial waste, industrial waste, radioactive material, explosives, ammunition, 55-gallon drums, household trash, refrigerators, microwaves or other appliances, tires, yard waste, roofing shingles and concrete.
