Illinois EPA Sets Up Spring Hazardous Waste Collection Sites

The Illinois EPA is offering residents the chance to dump some of their hazardous household waste.  

It plans several collection days across the state on Saturdays during May and June, including a May 13 collection in Ottawa. 

The sites will accept products such as antifreeze, weed killer, paint thinner, and outdated medicine. However, some waste is off limits, including smoke detectors, business waste, and explosives. 

You can find a list of one-time and long-term collection sites on the IEPA website.
