Dump trash at a recyclable drop-off box and you might spend a year behind bars

A public service announcement will soon be shown on Antietam Cable informing Washington County residents that the county’s recyclable drop-off boxes are for recyclables, not trash. Residents will be warned in the PSA that if they are caught dumping trash at one of the 11 unmanned recycling drop-off sites, they may face up to $12,500 in fines and a possible year in jail.
