Washtenaw County Home Toxics Reduction Program

SATURDAY COLLECTION EVENTS CLOSED FOR THE WINTER SEASON! December 2015-March 2016 BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please call 734.222.3950 to schedule a weekday drop-off appointment.

Please allow at least 48 business hours advance notice to requiring an appointment.

Saturday collection events resume on April 2, 2016! Events are held the first 3 Saturdays of the month April through November 2016, 9am-12noon. 
During the 2015 HTRP Season, 22 Saturday collections were held and approximately 510,000 pounds of toxic materials were collected from over 5,000 vehicles.

This program has collected and properly disposed of a cumulative total of 3.6 million pounds of hazardous waste since the program began in 1995. These materials were prevented from reaching the landfill and from causing potentially adverse environmental and public health affects.
No appointment needed on Saturdays!

The Home Toxics Reduction Program (HTRP) provides Washtenaw County residents with a disposal option for flammable, poisonous, toxic and corrosive materials. The program seeks to address the environmental and public health effects resulting from improper handling and disposal of home toxics, and is committed to reducing the use of home toxics and keeping citizens informed about the choices and responsibilities associated with purchasing, handling and disposing of toxic substances. When preparing to buy new products for your home, read the label first to see if it poses a threat. The product may be hazardous if indicator words, such as: WARNING, CAUTION, FLAMMABLE, POISON, DANGER, CORROSIVE, COMBUSTIBLE, TOXIC and/or HAZARDOUS are present somewhere within the labeling.
