Wayne County’s Department of Environment hosts the Household Hazardous Waste Collections each year for County residents. The collections are designed to accept unwanted household chemicals for proper disposal and electronics for recycling from residents. There is no fee to participate and you do not have to reserve a time with our department or the County. Simply show up!
