Household Hazardous Waste
The annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event will be Saturday, 5/3/2014, at the Williamson County Administrative Complex, 1320 West Main Street, Franklin from 8:30-2:00.

Overview

When you look in your garage, under your sink, in the basement, or shed do you see lots of unwanted pesticides, containers of dirty paint thinner, and other unusable household chemicals? If you answered Yes, you have hazardous waste in your home. Please gather these items for the spring 2014 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event.

View a listing of items accepted at the household hazardous waste collection site at 1320 West Main Street--the next Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event will occur spring/2014.

Any Tennessee citizen can participate in the Mobile Household Hazardous Waste Collection Service. The process is very simple. Check the collection schedule to determine a convenient event for you.

Transporting Items To HHW Event
When transporting materials to the site, place containers in sturdy boxes lined with newspaper to prevent spills and cross-contamination in the trunk of a car or back of a truck. Be sure to keep materials away from children and pets.

For safety, don't mix materials, keep them in their original containers, double package any leaking containers, and place any breakable containers in a box, cushioned with newspaper. When you get to the event you will be surveyed to find out what county you live in and where you learned about the event.

Only households may use the service to dispose of hazardous wastes. No commercial, institutional, or agri-business waste will be accepted. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture runs an Agricultural Pesticide Waste Collection Program that will accept pesticides from farmers. Additionally, no explosive, ordnance, ammunition, radioactive, or medical waste will be accepted.
