October 12, 2019 at Expo Gardens 8 a.m.-3 p.m. BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
The 2019 Peoria County Household Hazardous Waste Collection will be held on October 12, 2019. In a change from past practice, the 2019 event will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY in order to regulate traffic flow more evenly. Residents must sign up for an appointment by 2 pm on Friday, October 11.
The event, which we dub "HHW", takes place at Expo Gardens, the site where the Heart of Illinois Fair is held. It is located at 1601 W Northmoor Road, between Allen Road and University Street. Please use University Street to access Northmoor Road, as there is road construction on Northmoor Road between Allen Road and Expo Gardens.
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED: Latex paint, tires, agricultural chemicals, propane tanks, business wastes, smoke detectors, explosives, farm machinery oil, fireworks, fire extinguishers, lead-acid batteries, medical wastes, sharps, and needles.
LATEX PAINT IS NOT HAZARDOUS: Dispose of latex paint safely and legally by drying it out completely and then putting it in the trash. Add kitty litter, shredded paper, or other absorbents for quick drying.
HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS CARPOOL YOUR HHW: Help keep the lines short and wait to a minimum by bringing materials from multiple households in one car. Please help neighbors who are elderly, have mobility restrictions, or do not have cars.
