   Explanation of Household Hazardous Waste

Spring & 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 event for City residents. This event is in accordance to with EPA guidelines and regulations. If you are not a City of Springfield resident and need to dispose of your household hazardous waste, click here for more info.
