2017 Household Hazardous Waste Program
Since the majority of hazardous materials used in homes today can be either recycled, reused, or can be safely destroyed, Northfield Township Road District Highway Commissioner Peter Amarantos has entered into an agreement with Heritage Environmental Services to create a limited Household Hazardous Waste Program for our homeowners in Northfield Township to safely dispose of their unwanted household cleaning and maintenance products.
Our HHW program is a way in which we can offer homeowners of Northfield Township an alternative to disposal of the chemicals in a landfill. The Road District has made it simple. On April 20 & 21, May 25 & 26, June 15 & 16 and October 26 & 27 from 7AM until 3PM, Northfield Township residents can drop off accepted household chemical waste at 1928 Lehigh Avenue in Glenview. We will be checking identification.
The following items will be accepted: antifreeze, cleaning products that are consumer commodities only, charcoal lighter fluid, driveway sealer (limit of 2 five gallon buckets), drain cleaners, paint thinners and gasoline in approved/original containers only, insecticides and herbicides.
- No medical waste of any kind
- No Propane cylinders of any size
- No items containing Mercury
- No pool chemicals
- No business/commercial waste accepted
- All items must be in original containers
At the collection site, Road District employees will help unload cars, segregating and repackaging the waste. The waste is prepared for shipment, ensuring all DOT and EPA regulations are met. The material is then transported to the Heritage Environmental Services facility for proper disposal/recycling.
