Oil, flammable materials, batteries, any liquid paints or solvents, chemicals, pesticides or yard clippings, brush or branches.  Refrigerators will be accepted for a disposal fee of $30.00 and passenger tires only at $6.00 each.

Household Hazardous Waste Days

Once again, Antrim County will be hosting Household Hazardous Waste collection days throughout the County. Thanks to the Department of Environmental Quality Scrap Tire Clean Up Grant, an additional date has been added to the event that will be specifically dedicated to scrap tire disposal. 

The first one hundred (100) pounds of household hazardous wastes are free, but there is a $1.00 charge for every pound thereafter. All pesticides and herbicides are free through the Michigan Clean Sweep Program. All scrap tires are free (up to ten (10) tires per household) through the DEQ Scrap Tire Clean Up Grant.

Latex based paints will be accepted at a charge of $1 per gallon-sized container (a container of 1 gallon will be charge $1; a container of 5 gallons will be charged $5). Charges are based on the size of the container, not the amount of paint in the container. Disposal for containers smaller than 1 gallon will be free.

Fore more information on items that are accepted at these events, please contact the Antrim Conservation District at (231)533-8363, or head over to their website.
