Get Rid of Household Hazardous Waste on Saturday

It’s time to get ready for the annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event (HHWCE) sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the Resource Authority in Sumner County and Volunteer State Community College. This year the event will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Volunteer State Community College. If you are a Tennessee resident you can bring in your household hazardous waste for FREE!  

Any household product that has at least one ingredient in it that is flammable, corrosive, reactive or toxic is considered hazardous and should not be thrown in the regular trash. Many household cleaners, automotive products, lawn care products and home maintenance products are considered hazardous. Waste from non-household sources such as businesses, schools, churches, etc. will not be accepted.  Latex and oil based paints will not be accepted at the event.  Instead, these items can be taken to the Resource Authority in Sumner County during regular business hours. The Resource Authority is located at 625 Rappahannock Wire Road in Gallatin.  For questions regarding the Resource Authority you may call 615-452-1114.
