Household hazardous waste collection set

SYCAMORE – The DeKalb County Health Department will host a household hazardous waste collection from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore.

Items will be collected by Heritage Environmental Services, an Illinois Environmental Protection Agency licensed contractor. Volunteers will be on-site to assist with traffic flow. The vendor will help remove items from vehicles. Residents are encouraged to remain in their vehicles to help traffic move faster.

Residents can bring oil-based paints, paint thinners, chemical cleaners, mercury and mercury-containing items, antifreeze, motor oil, gasoline, kerosene, weed killers, insecticides, pesticides, adhesives, hobby chemicals and fluorescent and other high-intensity discharge lamps.

Items not accepted include propane tanks, pharmaceuticals, explosives, fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, biohazard waste, sharps, agricultural chemicals and all business wastes.

For information, call the DeKalb County Health Department at 815-758-6673 or email recyclemailbox@dekalbcounty.org.
