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.
