The goal of the program is to keep HHW out of the county rivers, lakes, streams and ditches. The collection is FREE to all Shiawassee County Residents. Past collections have received 227,060 pounds of hazardous waste, which was safely disposed of or recycled. Most of these items would have ended up flushed down the sewer, into a septic system, buried at the local landfill or dumped in rivers and streams. Accepted materials include anything that is toxic, flammable, corrosive or reactive. We do not accept latex paint. Latex paint can be dried out and safely disposed of with household trash.
No appointment is necessary for the collection; please bring any household hazardous waste materials you have starting at 8 a.m. The HHW collection is on a first come, first serve basis. For additional information contact the Shiawassee County Health Department at (989) 743-2392. For information on all HHW materials please visit http://www.shiawasseechd.net/Environmental-Health/
