Event Description:

Tox-Away Days are an opportunity for Hendricks County residents to properly recycle or dispose of household hazardous wastes, medical sharps, unwanted medicines, tires, appliances, computer components and electronics.

Common examples of household hazardous wastes include: cleaners, antifreeze, fluorescent light bulbs (including CFLs), herbicides, pesticides, pool chemicals, oil-based paints and stains, fuels, mercury-containing items, medical sharps, batteries and adhesives.

The District asks residents not to bring latex paint to Tox-Away Day for disposal. Since latex paint is water-based, it is safe to dispose of with normal household trash. See HendricksSolidWaste.com/latexpaintdrying.

The Hendricks County Substance Abuse Task Force will collect unwanted medicines during the Tox-Away Days, free of charge. Leave the drugs in their original containers and ensure that the name and strength of the drug is readable as well as the name of pharmacy where it was filled, in the case of prescription medicines. Any personal information may be blacked out or removed from the containers.

Some fees may apply depending on the number and type of items.  More information about the Tox-Away Day program is available by calling the District’s office at 317-858-6070 or by visiting HendricksSolidWaste.com.
