FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OPERATIONAL CHANGES AT WAUKESHA COUNTY
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION SITES


Waukesha, WI – In an effort to maintain the efficiency and convenience of the household hazardous waste program for residents, while also controlling costs, collection sites hours and accepted materials are being reduced. Effective May 1, 2014, the Waukesha Site will no longer be open on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and has decreased their Saturday hours to 8 a.m. until noon and the Franklin site will be open the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The new operational hours include:

Site and Location; Hours of Operation

Waukesha Site
City Incinerator Building
900 Sentry Drive
April – November
2nd and 4th Saturdays, 8 a.m. to noon
December – March
2nd Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon

Menomonee Falls Site

In addition to the change in operational hours, all Waukesha County household hazardous waste sites will no longer accept antifreeze, motor oil and oil filters. Motor oil and filters are accepted for free disposal at 14 municipal recycling drop-off sites as well as at Jensen Environmental Services in Muskego located at W144 S6347 College Court. Some municipal sites will only accept these items from their residents. Therefore, call your municipal office for more information or visit waukeshacounty.gov/recycling and click on the automotive tab under product disposal for more locations accepting antifreeze, motor oil and oil filters for recycling.

Other items not accepted at the household hazardous waste sites include: batteries, medicines, sharps, latex paint, water based glue, empty containers, fertilizer without weed killer and propane tanks.

Items accepted at household hazardous waste sites include: lead-based paint, oil-based paint, stain and varnish, glues with solvents, compact fluorescent bulbs/lamps (also recyclable at many local retail stores), thermometers and thermostats with mercury, fertilizer with weed killer, rodent and insect killer, brake cleaner and solvent-containing products that have the words flammable, combustible or contains petroleum distillates on the label.

We appreciate Waukesha County resident’s due diligence of disposing these hazardous wastes responsibly. Together, Waukesha County residents have safely disposed of 2.3 million pounds of hazardous materials. Due to the high expense to properly manage these materials, residents should continue to purchase only what is needed and use up the product or ask friends, family or neighbors if they can use the product. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these operational changes.

For more information or a full detailed brochure about items accepted or not accepted at the household hazardous waste site visit waukeshacounty.gov/hazardouswaste or call 262-896-8300.
