Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are any unwanted household product labeled as flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive. Their characteristics make them very common to obtain/posses but unsafe for general landfill disposal. Common HHW items include:

  • Acids and bases
  • Cleaners
  • Paints and stains
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Pool chemicals
  • Pesticides/herbicides
  • Automotive fluids
  • Camp stove propane tanks
  • More...

Disposal Options

There are no permanent collection or drop-off facilities in the Eaton County area for HHW. ECDRR accepts these items at our three recycling events held annually in May, June, and August. There are other events in the Lansing area that collect these items and are open to the public.   

Sometimes we can offer advice/options for disposal of specific items. For these and other inquires please contact our office.
