Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic or reactive ingredients are considered to be "household hazardous waste" (HHW). HHW includes products such as oil-based paints, cleaners, oils, Ni-Cad/Lithium batteries, unused or expired medications, pesticides, or other items that contain potentially hazardous ingredients. These products are safe to use when you follow the manufacturer's instructions, but they require special handling when you are ready to dispose of them. If disposed of improperly, these wastes can pollute the environment and they can pose a threat to human health. HHW should not be poured down the drain, on the ground, or into storm sewers.
What to Do With Household Hazardous Wastes
Any household hazardous waste should be saved and brought to one of the monthly Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Days sponsored by the Elkhart County Solid Waste Management District (SWMD). All Elkhart County residents are welcomed to drop off HHW generated from their homes at HHW Drop-Off Days, which are held on the first Saturday of every month from 8 am to 3 pm at the Elkhart County Correctional Facility on County Road 7 just north of County Road 26. For more information about HHW Drop-Off Days please call the Solid Waste Management District at 574-293-2269 or visit their website.
Additional disposal information can be found at earth911.com.
