Hazardous Waste Disposal Options

Products (such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides) that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them. Proper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger human and environmental health.

The Delaware, Knox, Marion, Marrow Solid Waste District hosts special collection events each year where hazardous waste and/or electronics are accepted free of charge (small fee for paint) from residents.  

Chemicals, cleaners, oils, and other hazardous waste should never be poured down drains (including storm drains along the roadside.), toilets, or on the ground.  Federal law allows residents to dispose of hazardous waste in the trash. However, collection events allow materials to be recycled when possible and disposed of safely when recycling isn't an option.

  • Medication Disposal: Permanent drop-box located at the Genoa Township Police Department (6921 Big Walnut Road). No liquids, please.
