Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Saturday, April 21, 2018

If not disposed of safely, common household hazardous wastes, such as oil-based paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides can react, be toxic, catch fire or explode. To help residents safely dispose of these unwanted items, the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) partners with local municipalities to sponsor Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) mobile collection events.

Residents can bring their old lawn chemicals, paint strippers, acids, insecticides, and more for recycling and/or environmentally safe disposal. A complete list of accepted materials is available at swaco.org.

Residents should be aware that because latex and water based paints aren’t hazardous and can be dried easily and placed in the trash, there will be a $1 per container charge during the event for the disposal of this material.

Unlike latex and water based paints, household hazardous waste materials require special handling and should not be put in the trash and sent to the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill.

In addition to the mobile collection events held throughout the year, SWACO provides free HHW disposal services at a permanent drop-off location at 645 E. 8th Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43201.

During the event, representatives from Operation Feed will also be on hand to collect canned goods and cash, AMVETS will accept clothing, and electronic waste will be accepted.
