Find Help for Calvert County Youth in Your Closet
The Calvert County Solid Waste Division asks residents to go through their closet to support the youth drug and violence-free D.A.R.E. program. The contracted recycling vendor will donate $900.00 to the county's D.A.R.E. program for nine additional textile recycling containers. Beyond the seven Customer Convenience Centers, additional D.A.R.E. textile recycling containers are outside at these public facilities. Please donate only dry items bundled in plastic bags.
