#TipTuesday- Getting Rid of Hazardous Waste

Hazardous and toxic waste items are harmful to throw away. To ensure your hazardous waste is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner, take it to a hazardous waste collection center.

SWACO operates a permanent household hazardous waste center in Columbus, where local residents can drop off their waste during hours of operation. They accept a variety of items, including gas, oil, and fluorescent light bulbs. To view the full list of accepted items, go here: https://www.swaco.org/195/Household-Hazardous-Waste.

SWACO also partners with local communities in the Columbus area to have hazardous waste collection events. You can find the location and dates of this year’s collection events here: https://www.swaco.org/195/Household-Hazardous-Waste.
