Romulus Public Library prepares to open to public

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.

Items that will be accepted at the waste collection event in clued paints, stains and dyes, floor wax, floor care product, carpet cleaner, furniture polish bathroom cleaners, stain removers, solvents, non-controlled pharmaceutical products, nail polish, glue, fertilizer, lawn and garden chemicals, pesticides, antifreeze, motor oil, gasoline, automotive batteries and dry cell batteries, florescent bulbs, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, mercury thermometers, thermostats, elemental mercury and electronic recycling along with computers, monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, mice and cell phones, fax machines, copiers and televisions.
