No containers will be returned so please pack donation items in containers you are willing to part with.

   Explanation of Household Hazardous Waste

 Fall Residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Household Hazardous Wastes are materials and chemicals that are toxic, flammable, corrosive, reactive, or explosive. They typically cannot be safely recycled or disposed of without a special center or collection event. These wastes can be a serious threat to water supplies and our local environment if they are improperly discarded with nonhazardous trash (put into a municipal solid waste landfill), dumped down the drain, or illegally dumped elsewhere. The City of Springfield’s Office of Public Works holds an annual hazardous waste drop off in accordance with EPA guidelines and regulations. Normally for city residents only, this year, the City has partnered with the IEPA to host a co-sponsored collection open to ALL Illinois residents. This program is for residents only and does not include businesses, organizations, or institutions.
