MEDICAL SHARPS COMPLIANCE PROGRAM

On October 1, 2007 the Department kicked off a safer version of the former Sharps Disposal Program. With this new effort in place, residents utilize local participating pharmacies to obtain secure, mail-back Sharps containers.

MERCURY THERMOMETER EXCHANGE PROGRAM

Nearly fifteen years ago, the Department started a partnership with local village and township halls in order to collect mercury thermometers from Eaton County residents. In return for bringing in mercury thermometers, each participant receives a digital thermometer, free of charge.

COOKING OIL RECOVERY PROGRAM

In 2007, the Department of Resource Recovery asked Eaton County Recycling Centers to act as drop-off point for the collection of cooking oil. Yes, cooking oil. This substance is very bad for drains and septic systems and wastewater treatment plants are not adequately equipped to handle the material. If left in trash, it can attract unwanted pests. The link below offers Eaton County residents the opportunity to pour off their cooking oil at various locations.
