The Household Hazardous Waste facility will be closed through January 2, 2017.  Please do not leave your items here; take them to the County Shop at 600 West M Street.  Sorry for the inconvenience.”

 

Follow these instructions when bringing your items to the Red Willow County Household Hazardous Waste Facility

These simple rules are for your safety:

  • Keep products in their original containers.
  • Never mix household chemical products.
  • Tighten all lids before transporting.
  • Place the containers inside a box so they remain upright. We suggest lining the box with plastic or newspaper to collect any spills or leaks.
  • Place leaking or damaged containers inside a heavy or double plastic bag. Only one leaking or damaged container per bag.
  • Label any unmarked containers. If you don’t know what the chemical is, ask others in your household who may know and write down their comments.
  • Place the box of containers in a level place in your vehicle. In the trunk or bed of a truck is preferred.
  • If transporting the containers inside the vehicle, open two windows to allow fresh air to enter.
  • Go directly to the facility after packing your vehicle. Don’t run errands, go to work or park your vehicle in the sun while the chemicals are inside. The vapor build up could be dangerous!
