Ink Cartridge Recycling Program

Visit the Gordon Building (main County Administration office; 112 West Main Street, Orange) to recycle the consumables from your printer/copier. Look for the cardboard recycling box next to the water fountain, across from the Treasurer's Office window. Any printing and imaging supply that can be replaced by the consumer may be dropped off in this bin, including: fusers, drums, toner bottles, toner cartridges (laser, inkjet, fax, etc.), and waste toner collectors. Remove any packaging from the supplies before placing them in the box. This free program is made possible in partnership with Konica Minolta.

Request a Road Cleanup Form

Please use this form to indicate that a road is in need of cleanup. This will help us get a clearer picture of problem areas and better allocate resources. Please be aware that resources are limited, and while we will attempt to address all submissions; submission of this form does not guarantee a cleanup.

Litter Response Team Volunteer Interest Form

As we are working to allocate resources to address littered roads, we often need additional support. To that end, we are working on the creation of a volunteer group known as the Litter Response Team. This group of volunteers would be contacted if additional support was needed to clean up a road or for recycling events. If you would like to be a part of this group, please complete the above form.
