Household hazardous waste (HHW) is common household chemicals and substances for which the owner no longer has a use. It tends to be containers of half-used chemicals that accumulate under the kitchen sink, on the shelves in the garage and stacked up in the shed and barn. These materials pile up because they are no longer needed, but homeowners are unsure of the proper way to dispose of the items.
This stands for Stopping Minors with Alcohol Response Teams. This will be a group of off duty officers from the various agencies in the county doing projects at least 4 times a year to watch for illegal sales of alcohol to minors, monitor minors on probation and minors in consumption.
RX Drop Boxes are designed to reduce prescription drugs in homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. Prescription drugs have become the target of theft and misuse. Unfortunately, people who have access to the residence are the culprits. Prescription drugs have become the number one substance of abuse for America's 12 to 17 year olds and much of that supply is unwittingly coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents, and friends.
Tox-Away Days are scheduled at various locations around the community each year to collect household hazardous wastes (HHW) and “problem wastes” from Hendricks County residents. Only residents of Hendricks County are allowed to utilize the District’s Tox-Away Day events.
