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.
