The construction work associated with this expansion project has been completed and the HHW Facility is now OPEN! We have resumed collections during our standard operating hours.
This newly renovated facility has given Scott County four main areas of improvement:
An expanded drop-off area
A turn-around lane for better traffic flow
Additional storage space for operations
A rear canopy for outdoor storage
The Scott County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program has been serving local residents and businesses since 1992. For the first few years, our HHW collections were held two-times-per-year, in the parking lot of the County Highway Department. However crowds soon outgrew that temporary location, so our permanent HHW Facility was constructed and opened in 2001. At first we operated 2x per week, and after a few years that schedule was expanded to 3x per week. Now, after 15 years of serving Scott County residents, and almost 10 Million pounds of hazardous waste collected, we have simply outgrown our original facility.
