Description: Muskegon County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program Muskegon County Department of Public Works offers a free disposal program to Muskegon County residents for unwanted Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) generated in county. Please note that Commercial and Industrial waste is prohibited. The goal of the HHW program is to divert hazardous materials from the landfill in order to protect residents and the environment. Should you possess any of the following materials, the HHW program will dispose of them in a safe and responsible manner. Mercury or mercury containing devices (i.e. Compact Florescent Light bulbs, mercury thermometers or thermostats, etc.) Petroleum products* Antifreeze Pesticides Insecticides Herbicides Aerosol cans (containing hazardous materials) Acids (i.e. Batteries, Muriatic Acid)** Bases (i.e. Drain cleaner) Other products with approval * Recycling Used Oil is preferred over disposal as HHW. Used oil can be recycled, free of charge, at any AutoZone location among other outlets. Click here for a complete list of Used Oil recycling options in Muskegon County. **LEAD ACID BATTERIES (i.e. car/boat batteries) are NOT accepted. NOTE: Paint is not accepted. The best way to dispose of paint is to use it up or recycle it! If you’re purchasing paint for a project, consider the area you have to cover and use a paint calculator to ensure you’re not buying too much. If you have leftover (never-frozen) latex paint that you wish to recycle, you can bring it to the Muskegon County Habitat for Humanity ReStore Locations or to Port City Paints/RepcoLite Paints, Inc. As a last resort, if you cannot find a use/recycling outlet for old leftover paint (latex or oil-based), it may be disposed of with your household trash as long as it is dried or solidified by adding kitty litter, (or other drying media) and leaving it open to dry in a well-ventilated area, away from children and animals.
