Household Hazardous Waste

In 2017, Household Hazardous Waste disposal will be available at the Transfer Station every Wednesday, from 9 am to 1 pm, from April through September.

The cost to dispose of material through this program is $1 per pound. 

What about latex paint?
Latex paint is not hazardous waste, latex paint can be accepted any time during regular business hours at the Miami County Solid Waste Transfer Station.

Residents (no business) can bring up to 15 gallons of latex paint per day for the current tipping fee.

Why should I properly dispose of hazardous products?


How to transport Household Hazardous Waste
Proper handling and transporting of hazardous waste can reduce the possibility of accidental spills.


Do not transport hazardous waste in the same part of your vehicle with your children or pets. Place materials in the trunk or in the rear of your vehicle. Place a piece of plastic or some type of protective barrier down before loading materials into your vehicle for easier cleanup in case of a spill.
