Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Toxic waste is a growing problem. It’s estimated that the average household disposes one pound of hazardous waste each year. Rather than release toxins into our environment, household hazardous waste collections are available throughout the Spring, Summer and early Fall seasons for proper disposal of harmful products containing dangerous materials. 2022 season dates are set!

Season kicks off on Saturday May 7th at the Porter County Expo Center located at 215 E. Division Road – Valparaiso, IN.

At upcoming collection events, Porter County residents can dispose of clean and dry plastic bags, plastic film wraps, grocery bags and plastic wrapping. Water softener bags are not be accepted.

Beyond plastic bags residents can dispose of products containing: corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive substances. Common household hazardous waste items include anti-freeze, motor oil, batteries (household & automotive), fluorescent bulbs, oil based paints, deck stains, and household smoke detectors.
