Washtenaw County Home Toxics Collection Center
Collections are held the first three (3) Saturdays of each month, April-November 2013 from 9 am - noon, EXCLUDING HOLIDAY WEEKENDS. This is a first come, first serve program. If you are unable to attend a Saturday collection please call 734.222.6874 to make an appointment during the week; Monday-Friday 9 am - 5 pm.
Showing up during the week without an appointment will not guarantee an employee will be present to help you, please call ahead so we can be there to help you!
REMINDER: NEVER drop-off toxics without a County employee to assist you. Leaving toxics outside the collection area fence or anywhere in the parking lot is STRICTLY PROHIBITED as it has potential for adverse environmental effects and health risks. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
Eligibility & Cost
The Home Toxics Collection Program is open to ALL Washtenaw County Residents and is not intended for businesses and/or organizations. However, if you need information or help finding disposal options please contact us or visit our Business Recycling page. The collection program is a FREE service for residents. We do accept donations, which go directly to the cost of disposal. Each year the donations collected are responsible for approximately 10% of the total disposal costs.
The Home Toxics Reduction Center is located at the Western Washtenaw County Service Center, at 705 N. Zeeb Rd. (just north of Exit 169 on I-94). Access directions here. The Center is a white shed surrounded by a green chain-link fence, on the south side of the parking lot behind the Service Center Building. (Map) Once you arrive for a Saturday collection, please follow the signs that will lead to the collection shed. If you arrive during the week for a scheduled appointment, please first come to the front desk (leave your toxics in your car) to confirm your arrival.
