Hazardous waste drop-off
in Armada Saturday, April 22
The Macomb County Health Department is conducting a household hazardous waste and computer recycling collection from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 22, at the Armada Fair Grounds in downtown Armada.
Macomb County residents are invited to drop off unwanted or unused household chemicals, pesticides and herbicides. Automotive products (motor oil and oil filters, gasoline, battery acid and fluids), garden products (pesticides, poisons, sprays and dusts) and household products (oven cleaners, pool chemicals, photography chemicals, fluorescent tubes, household batteries, oil based paint and solvents) will be accepted.
Unwanted medications from residents will also be accepted. However, only non-narcotic medications will be accepted in nondescript containers such as a plastic bag.
One free environmentally friendly fluorescent tube or compact fluorescent light, per household, will be exchanged for any fluorescent tube delivered.
Computer components (monitors, CPUs, scanners, printers, keyboards) will be accepted from residents only, no schools or commercial entities may participate. Other types of electronic equipment, such as televisions, radios and household appliances will not be accepted.
Also not accepted are: smoke detectors, latex paint, antifreeze, explosives, ammunition, flares, and narcotic medications.
All materials should be labeled or kept in their original containers (except medications). Do not mix chemicals or transport leaking containers.
For additional information, contact the Macomb County Health Department's Household Hazardous Waste Hotline at 586-466-7923.
This project is made possible by the Macomb County Board of Commissioners and the Michigan Department of Agriculture's Clean Sweep Program.
