Household Hazardous Waste Events

Friday, September 11th 2015 - All Day

The Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council along with the communities of Laurel, Creighton and Elgin are hosting Household Hazardous Waste events next week.  Friday, September 11th the collection will be in Laurel at their recycling center from 3 – 5 p.m.  Saturday, September 12th Creighton will be collecting at their recycling center east of town from 8 – 10 a.m.  Later that day in Elgin from 2 – 4 p.m. the collection will be downtown at the CVA lot across from the Post Office.   

These collection events are for households only, no businesses.   Participants will be asked for a small fee to help with the cost of the project.  These are also being funded in part by a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. 

Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable, or reactive ingredients are considered to be household hazardous waste (HHW).  Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when disposed of.  Red Willow County Household Hazardous Waste is the contractor for these events and is well-versed in the proper landing and disposal of these materials.  Some items brought in may be available for recycling or reuse to those who have need of them.  

The benefits of proper disposal or recycling of HHW are many.  By reducing and recycling natural resources and energy are saved.  Reuse of hazardous household products can save money and reduce the need for keeping hazardous substances around homes and properties.  And proper disposal prevents pollution that could harm humans, pets, and the environment. 

Contact the RC&D Council at 402-582-4866 or via email at for more information.  The RC&D looks forward to continuing their service to citizens through projects that will make life better for people in Antelope, Cedar, Dixon, Knox, Madison, Pierce, and Wayne counties.
