Hamilton County Indiana’s Eco-Friendly Solution to Hazardous Household Waste

Hamilton County Residents: How to Properly Dispose of Your Hazardous Household Waste

Every day, we use products that help us stay connected, clean our homes, and protect our gardens from pests. However, once these items are no longer needed, they can become a danger to our health and the environment if not disposed of correctly. Electronics like computers and phones, as well as household cleaners, paints, car products, pesticides, and even some light bulbs and batteries, are filled with harmful substances that should not be placed in the trash.

To address this issue, Hamilton County Indiana has a facility where Hamilton County residents can dispose of dangerous items safely. The Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Drop-Off Center accepts a wide variety of items such as electronics, chemicals, paint, tires, old TV’s and even refrigerators. For the complete list, see Materials Accepted at the HHW Drop off Center.

This service is for Hamilton County residents only. The facility does not accept materials from out-of-county residents. Nor does it accept materials from businesses, non-profits, contractors, etc.

Hamilton County has made the process of disposing of hazardous waste as easy as possible. Residents are asked to sign up in advance, which makes the process smoother and helps the center keep track of what’s being brought in. This pre-registration is quick and helps the center operate efficiently and gather important information to support its services.

For non-hazardous waste, the center has a self-serve General Recycling Area for recycling common items like cardboard, paper, glass, and metal cans. This area is open for use without the need to sign up, showing the county’s dedication to recycling and managing waste responsibly.

Whether you’re decluttering your home or updating your gadgets, it’s reassuring to know that in Hamilton County, there’s a place where you can safely dispose of items that shouldn’t be thrown away or poured down the drain. The county’s efforts to offer accessible and efficient waste disposal solutions are part of a larger commitment to protecting the environment and ensuring public safety, serving as a model for other communities to follow. And don’t forget, electronics in working order can easily be donated to thrift stores, such as those operated by Goodwill, The Salvation Army, or Grace Church.
