Heritage Thermal Services prepares for Earth Day event in East Liverpool

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – After having to cancel last year’s citySweep event, Heritage Thermal Services is pleased to announce that its collection of household hazardous wastes is back for 2021. Final preparations are underway to resume the free community-wide event that the facility started in 1997 to commemorate Earth Day.

The collection of household hazardous wastes, old consumer electronics, light bulbs and batteries will take place at the East End facility on April 24 from 8 a.m. – noon. Residents needing to dispose of expired or surplus pharmaceuticals can drop them off that day at East Liverpool City Hospital from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The hospital is among the citySweep sponsors for 2021.

For safety reasons, residents are reminded to pack their materials securely. Smoking, hitch trailers and propane tanks are not permitted onsite. Persons delivering their materials must remain in their vehicles.

Along with the hospital, the City of East Liverpool and the Southern Columbiana County Regional Chamber of Commerce will cleanup several neighborhoods in the city. Tim Hortons and WTOV-TV9 are also sponsors of the Earth Day activities.

Since the first citySweep collection in 1997, East Liverpool-area residents have recycled or disposed of more than 248 tons of household chemical wastes and old electronics that otherwise would have been poured down the drain or tossed in the trash.
