SPECIAL COLLECTIONS

 
We hold an Annual Event for residents to dispose of their chemicals, paints, light bulbs, lead acid batteries, and grill propane tanks safely.  We expect to host two Collections, one in each County, each year.  Both collections are open to all our district residents. 
You can view the dates for our collections as well as a list of what will and will not be accepted by clicking the link below.

NOTE!!  This year tires will be collected at a separate Collection for Belmont County dates.  No tires will be accepted at the Belmont Community Cleanups.   There will be a special Tire Collection in Belmont County.  See Belmont Schedule for details.
 
 
 

We advise residents when purchasing any new large electronics to always ask  if they have a “take back” program, especially televisions since the old tube style are now the most difficult to get rid of locally and we must share the cost with residents for their disposal.

 

Check our "What Can I do With" Guide at the bottom of this page for local options.

THERE WILL BE NO ELECTRONIC COLLECTIONS IN 2021 DUE TO COVID-19.  RESIDENTS ARE ASKED TO  UTILIZE THE LOCAL BUSINESSES NOW LOCATED IN OUR AREA TO PROPERLY DISPOSE/RECYCLE THEIR ELECTRONICS.

BATTERIES

Jefferson and Belmont County residents can bring household and rechargeable batteries for recycling to our Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events.  We will no longer be able to accept them year round due to changes in shipping requirements; issues of corroded batteries being dropped off - which is very hazardous to our staff; and batteries that are not taped as required- a fire hazard for where they are stored.  
Please do no attempt to recycle  any batteries at our offices.  Car and other vehicle batteries are also not accepted at our office locations or community drop off locations. 
Acceptable batteries include: Alkaline, NiMH - Nickel Cadmium, NiCad - Nickel Metal Hydride, Zinc Air, Non-Lithium Button Cell, Primary Lithium, Lithium Ion, Sealed Lead Batteries. 
 
Scotch TAPE or (plastic sandwich) bag all battery terminals separately to prevent sparks that can cause a fire or explosion while storing your batteries!! 
Batteries should never be left at Community Drop off sites! They are considered hazardous material and must be disposed of properly.
