NoHaz Waste & Recycling Events

NoHaz

Not sure how to dispose of hazardous household waste? Learn more about the NoHaz waste & recycling events coming soon!

The NoHaz Consortium is a group of Oakland County communities that have come together to provide residents with a safe, reliable and environmentally-responsible way to dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW). These wastes are the substances in your home that can be harmful to humans and the environment if not disposed of properly. Each year, NoHaz schedules collection events to provide disposal opportunities for residents of the member communities.


What is Household Hazardous Waste?

Household hazardous waste (HHW) is the unwanted or unusable portion of consumer products that contain substances that can harm people or the environment.  Unlike industrial hazardous wastes, household hazardous wastes are not regulated.  Most households can identify at least a few products as hazardous.  Household cleaners, paint, pesticides, batteries and prescription medicines are just a few.  They have made our lives easier but they can also be toxic to our health and our environment when we use them and when we throw them away
