Overview

When you look in your garage, under your sink, in the basement, or inside your shed do you see a lot 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 2015 Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event.

The annual Williamson County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event occurs once every spring. View a listing of items accepted at the household hazardous waste collection site at 1320 West Main Street.

When you arrive at the event, you will be surveyed to find out what county you live in and how many households you are bringing in items for. You will then be directed to disposal areas.

Any Tennessee citizen can participate in the Mobile Household Hazardous Waste Collection Service. The process is very simple. Click here to check the 2014 household hazardous waste collection schedule to determine a convenient event for you.

Additionally, The Tennessee Department of Agriculture runs an Agricultural Pesticide Waste Collection Program that will accept pesticides from farmers.

No explosive, ammunition, radioactive, or medical waste will be accepted at any HHWD event.
