Household Hazardous Waste

HELP KEEP OUR DRINKING WATER CLEAN AND PREVENT ACCIDENTAL POISONING

The Hazardous Waste Collection Program runs from May through October each year.  Collections are held at 3414 N French Road, Appleton, just north of the County Dog Park.

This program allows Outagamie County residents, including all of Appleton and New London, to dispose of their hazardous materials safely, properly and free of charge, by appointment only.

If you are unable to attend a collection date or have disposal needs November through April, Outagamie County residents may take hazardous materials directly to the Brown County Hazardous Waste Facility free of charge.  Call (920) 492-4950 for program details.

Latex Paint Disposal
Latex paint is not hazardous since it is made from water.  Consider donating usable paint to friends, neighbors, theater groups or housing assistance organizations.

Latex paint disposal instructions:
For small amounts: remove the lid and let dry in the can. Stir the paint occasionally to speed dry.
For large amounts: line a box with a plastic bag. Place an absorbent material (kitty litter, sawdust, shredded newspaper) on bottom, pour a layer of paint and repeat as necessary.
Dispose of the dried paint and  cans in the regular garbage.
