CALUMET COUNTY RESIDENTS ONLY. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED.

Household hazardous materials are found in sheds, garages, basements, craft rooms, workshops or under kitchen sinks in many homes. Often these products are labeled with words such as: Caution, Warning, Danger, Poison, Flammable, Combustible or Corrosive.


Why Participate in this Event?

​Improperly disposed household hazardous materials can threaten the quality of our drinking water, increase the threat of algae blooms, and threaten the safety of sanitation workers. In addition, hazardous materials left around the house and garage pose an accidental poison risk to children and pets. These events are FREE to Calumet County residents thanks in part to grant funds, Hickory Meadows Landfill, Calumet County, and the local municipalities.
