Municipal waste water treatment plants are not designed to remove the complex compounds in both over-the-counter and prescription medication. As a result, trace amounts are being detected in our streams, rivers, and clean drinking water. Fortunately, the Fishers and Westfield Police Departments, as well as the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, all provide a medication dropbox in their lobbies for residents to use during open office hours. Please contact the location nearest to you for more detailed information on their collection program.

Over the years, regulations were enacted to eliminate the use of mercury in the production of alkaline batteries. Thus, today alkaline batteries are safe for disposal with your normal household trash. Rechargeable batteries, however, typically contain metals that are hazardous to the environment and should never be disposed of with your normal household trash. Instead, these type of batteries should be brought to the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center, or taken to a private firm for safe disposal.
At this time, the Hamilton County Household Hazardous Waste Center does not have a size restriction on televisions accepted; however all size and types of televisions will have a $20 fee.
