Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Drop-Off Center and General Recycling Area


New HHW Drop-Off Center Map Starting Jan 1, 2024


We have moved buildings!  We are now accepting HHW Drop-Off Center Materials at the building along the west side of the General Recycling Area.    You can expect a lot of changes over the next two to three years.  Pleasant Street is being expanded which is why we  had to move out of the building we were in for a long time.  Additionally, we will have some remodeling to improve our space which will impact drop-off location and increase congestion.  The Hamilton County Fairgrounds will also be receiving some renovations which could impact traffic around our facility.   Please register ahead to make sure we are open and you know the latest drop-off location.   Please have your materials sorted and ready to drop-off.   

  1. PLEASE, Register Your Visit in Advance

    Advanced registration is encouraged to drop-off household wastes such as chemicals, paint, electronics (including Televisions ($20 fee per Television), Freon containing materials (refrigerators/freezers), tires, etc... Pre-registration provides an efficient way for the HHW Center to collect data relative to the program’s services and support program justification. Residents will not be refused for failing to register but please let the technicians know if you did not so we can still record your information.  

    Our facility is for Hamilton County residents disposing of their personal household waste only. Limit 200 pounds of chemicals per residence per month. For more information on what we do and do not accept please visit the "Materials Accepted" part of our website or call 317-776-4005 and press 1 to speak to a technician. 

    You do NOT need to register for paper shred day events or for the general recycling compactors in the south part of our compound.
