Allen County begins weekly hazardous waste drop-off program

Posted: Updated:
ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) -

Safely storing and getting rid of hazardous materials is no small task which is why Allen County is making it easier for you to dispose of unsafe household objects.

Every Tuesday you can drop off those unwanted items at the household hazardous waste facility in Fort Wayne. This includes things like car batteries, propane tanks, pesticides and cleaning chemicals.

It sounds like day number one, was a success. The first Tuesday of the program saw more than 60 cars come through. People headed to the new hazardous waste facility off Carroll Road, where they dropped off more than 2000 pounds of material for safe disposal.

Program leaders say this is beneficial for the environment, and your health and safety.
