Unless you’ve been living under a paint can in the garage, you know that certain household waste belongs at a ToxDrop instead of the trash.
Now you have one more option for disposing of items like antifreeze, brake fluid, batteries, drain cleaners, fluorescent light bulbs, glue and adhesives, paints, paint thinner, pesticides, pool chemicals, household thermometers, toilet bowl cleaners, used motor oil, and gasoline.
The newest ToxDrop location is 1725 S. West St., Building #1, any Tuesday or Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to dispose of hazardous household waste. Other ToxDrop locations are:
- 7550 North Lafayette Road, 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, 9am to 2pm
- 9049 East 10th Street, 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9am to 2pm
- 4925 South Shelby Street, 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 9 am to 2pm
Thanks to The Toxic Crusaders of Indianapolis DPW, more than 1 million lbs. of household hazardous waste has been diverted from our sewers, waterways and landfills annually.
