Hazardous Waste Collection

WasteWhat are Hazardous Wastes?
Household hazardous wastes are common products found in the home. People usually store these materials for a time and eventually discard the unwanted items and their containers. When products are used according to label directions, most are not hazardous to use. They may become hazardous if you use or store them improperly. Environmental problems can arise if you dispose of products improperly.

Please DO NOT BURN, BURY, DUMP (in yard, toilet or down a storm sewer) or MIX leftover products. Chemical containers should not be reused for any other purpose.

How to dispose of Hazardous Wastes
Village residents can dispose of their hazardous wastes during Household Hazardous Waste Collection. This takes place at the Kenosha County Municipal Center (Hwy 45 & 50) on the first Saturday of May.

The Village will accept hazardous waste at the Residential Recycling Center (8000 128th Street) on the first Saturday of every month year-round, except January and May. This service is for Pleasant Prairie residents only.
