Our sincere thanks to all Tox-Away Day participants and volunteers!
Tox-Away Day is our annual event providing Allen County residents the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste.
These materials, if not disposed of properly, can be dangerous to our health and the environment.
This year, we collected over 25.6 tons of material at this one-day event.
Read more about Household Hazardous Waste on this EPA webpage.
