Household Hazardous Materials

Winnebago County Solid Waste operates a seasonal Household Hazardous Material (HHM) Collection Facility that accepts IN-COUNTY HOUSEHOLD SOURCED MATERIALS ONLY free of charge. The HHM Facility opens in April by appointment only.  We are now accepting April appointments for Household Hazardous Materials collection.


You must schedule an appointment by BOOKING ONLINE (below) or CALL 920-232-1800 to drop off household hazardous materials.  Appointments must be scheduled at least 2 days in advance.  No walk-ins or same-day appointments will be accepted.  If you have a large amount of items to drop off (such as a trailer full or pick-up truck bed full) please schedule 2 sequential appointments, giving yourself and our staff more time to assist you.
