The Calvert County Department of General Services Mosquito Control Program will be setting specialized mosquito traps in neighborhoods throughout the county to monitor adult mosquito populations. These canister-shaped traps are white or black and are about the size of a five-gallon bucket with wires and a battery attached. They are labeled “Calvert County Mosquito Control (410) 535-6924.” See the photo below.
Public messages have gone out to ensure the traps are not perceived to be suspicious packages. Please help spread the word. Residents are encouraged not to touch or disturb traps if they see them. Questions can be directed to the Mosquito Control Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A $2.6 million expansion project is now underway at the Mt. Hope Convenience Center that will improve traffic flow, increase services and enhance safety at the site.
The 12-month project, overseen by the Calvert County Department of Public Works, will enlarge the center and include new traffic patterns allowing the exchange of full bins without disrupting convenience center users. The center remains at its 96 Pushaw Station Road location in Sunderland.
New features at the center will include covered recycling areas and raised platforms adjacent to the bins affording easier access for offloading. The center will remain open throughout construction, though residents may experience periodic delays as work continues.
The salt dome at the site will be relocated to the area where the current convenience center stands.
