Household Hazardous Waste Collections Temporarily Suspended Statewide by IEPA


The Illinois EPA has announced a temporary suspension of all Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events and locations.  A fire in July required the Ohio disposal facility to cease operations until specifically made parts could be obtained from Germany. The temporary suspension remains in effect until the disposal facility is back in operation, which is not expected to be until mid-November.

In the meantime, the Illinois EPA continues to explore other options for HHW disposal and is committed to rescheduling collection events, depending on what alternative disposal arrangements are available and when the Ohio facility is again operational.
