- How Do I...
If we are unable to accept your items at the Washtenaw County Home Toxics program, please check these other local resources for disposal options.
Electronics / Computers
Like computers, other forms of electronic waste contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and brominated flame retardants. These should not be thrown away with regular trash. Here are some companies you can work with to dispose of your electronics properly.
Fats, Oils & Grease
Fats, oils, and grease buildup in pipes can become as hard as concrete and may completely block pipes, resulting in back-ups of raw sewage and / or flooding. Learn how to dispose of this properly.
Fertilizers & Pesticides (for Farms & Businesses)
Fertilizers are hazardous materials to our environment and their proper disposal is better for our health and the environment's. Learn more about disposing of fertilizers and pesticides.
The Home Toxics Reduction Program provides Washtenaw County residents with a disposal option for flammable, poisonous, toxic and corrosive materials.
