Many items we have in our homes can cause damage to the environment and us if not disposed of properly. To ensure that these materials are disposed of in the best manner the Charter Township of Plymouth offers a Household Hazardous Waste Collection event at least once per year for all of the Township’s residents.
A good rule of thumb to use to identify hazardous waste is that if the product has warnings such as, "warning" or "caution" or "danger" or "poison", consider it hazardous and do not dispose of in your regular trash, down the drain, or into a storm sewer. If you still are unsure please feel free to call the Solid Waste Department to find a definite answer or review the list below.
If you need to dispose of household hazardous waste before or after the scheduled waste collection event please view the following list of businesses that accept various types of household hazardous waste:
