If you are a resident or small business it is important to note that some chemicals can’t be disposed of in the trash like normal refuse. Disposing of these types of products improperly can harm the environment and contaminate groundwater.
The Marion County ToxDrop, operated by the Department of Public Works is a good option for disposing of your hazardous household waste and other items. ToxDrop is free to any resident of Marion County.
Notice: MCWEC does not provide this service. You must contact the Department of Public Works to verify times and acceptable items to dispose of by calling 317-327-4000 or visiting their website: www.indy.gov/activity/hazardous-waste-dropoff-sites.
