Home or Business?
Are the items you’re looking to dispose of from your home or business?
A hazardous product is one whose use or disposal poses a threat to human health or the environment. It should never be put in the trash, down the drain, into storm drains or burned. However, hazardous materials (HMs) are accepted free from LNI residents only.
What is a hazardous material?
How do you know if you have an HM? Read the label. Look for the words “poison,” “danger,” “warning” or “caution.” Any product which is reactive, corrosive, poisonous or flammable is categorized as an HM. That would include products such as paints, cleaners, oils, insecticides and solvents.
These Materials can be dropped off at the Landfill with NO cost to residential customers. Drop offs are by appointment only. Call first to set up an appointment time and date. We set appointments for every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon from 8:00am to 4:00pm and the 2nd Saturday of each month from 8:00am until 11:00am.

What happens to my cleaners and paints after I drop them off?
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by one of our trained environmental specialists who will assist you in the proper handling of your hazardous materials. From there, your products are evaluated for either further disposal or placement in our “Free Usable Products” area. Your waste material and/or containers are processed according to state and federal environmental regulations and sent to facilities permitted to handle hazardous material.
We believe in resource recovery as much as we believe in diverting waste from the landfill. Our “Free Usable Products” area offers free reusable products such as cleaners and paints. So if you’re bringing in an almost-empty bottle of glass cleaner, check and check to see if we have a replacement bottle.
