Well, it looks like the Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics Recycling program at the Prince William Landfill is going to be taking a little break. That's right, folks - due to a contracting issue, the program will be closed for the entire months of January and February.
But don't worry, the county assures us that they are "working on getting a new contractor and anticipates an award of the new contract within the next few weeks." So basically, they're just going to leave all of us residents to fend for ourselves with our hazardous waste and old electronics for the next two months. Fantastic.
In all seriousness, it's a shame that this necessary program will be closing temporarily due to issues with the contractor. But hey, at least we'll all have a chance to really put our hoarding skills to the test. Just imagine the fun of trying to find space for all those old cans of paint and outdated computers in our homes. It'll be like a twisted game of Tetris.
Let's hope that the county is able to secure a new, reliable contractor as soon as possible to resume this important service for the community. It's not every day that we get the opportunity to dispose of our hazardous waste safely and responsibly.
