Tox-Away Tuesdays

We have some exciting news for Allen County!

We are getting ready to launch a weekly Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) drop-off program at our refurbished facility located at 2260 Carroll Road, Fort Wayne. The HHW drop-off program will be open to the public every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., beginning July 10. Minimal fees and a weight limit of 50 lbs. will apply.

Tox-Away Day has been a popular program over the years and we recognize there is a greater need for a weekly HHW drop-off program.

  • Drop-off Hours: Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., beginning July 10
  • Drop-off Location: 2260 Carroll Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46818  (you must enter the HHW Facility via Fort Recovery Road from Lima Road)

 

We encourage residents and small businesses to reduce purchasing toxic HHW products and give away leftover HHW products to others who may need to use them for intended purposes. Small businesses and nonprofits in Allen County who are interested in our new HHW service must make an appointment with ACDEM by calling our facility at 260-449-4433.
