Home Toxics Reduction Program

Washtenaw County Home Toxics Reduction Program 

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. 

The HTRP has collected and properly disposed of a cumulative total of 3.1 million pounds of hazardous waste since the program started in 1995. During the 2014 HTRP Season, 23 Saturday Collections were held and 466,933 pounds of Home Toxics were collected from approximately 5,500 vehicles.  These materials were diverted from reaching the landfill and from causing potentially adverse environmental and public health affects. When preparing to buy new products for your home, read the label first to find out 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.
