For those residents who can’t make it to the one-day event, Baltimore County operates a year-round, full service household hazardous waste drop-off facility at the Central Acceptance Facility, located at 201 West Warren Road in Cockeysville (please note that some computer map programs will inaccurately show this address on the east side of York Road).
