Three special collection days are set throughout the year for all counties except Jefferson, which accepts HHW year-around for residents of all serviced counties. HHW can be disposed of at the Jefferson County Recycle Center in Madison at 6556 North Shun Pike Rd., JPG #534 inside the Jefferson Proving Grounds during normal business hours.

Examples of HHW include household cleaners, insecticides, pesticides, automotive products, and oil-based paints and stains. If a product is labeled “Danger,” “Poison,” or “Warning,” there is a good chance that it is HHW and should be disposed of properly. Improper disposal of HHW by regular trash or dumping on the ground or in the water supply is toxic to humans, wildlife, and our environment.
SEIRD can accept powder, liquid or crystalized HHW chemicals with their original labels attached. Latex paints are not acceptable, but can be disposed of in the regular trash after drying out leftover paint with rags, kitty litter or newspapers. A complete list of items that can be recycled or disposed of at SEIRD is available through our “What do I do with?” link on this website.
