Household Hazardous Waste

Recycling wastes you have stored at home like your used oil, antifreeze, pesticides, fluorescent bulbs, batteries, oil-based paint and more keeps your home and Summit County tidy and healthy. (Yes, even burned out, green-tipped fluorescent bulbs contain mercury).

Recycling these Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) also conserves resources and energy that would be expended in the production of more products. Proper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger human health and the environment.

Think about the hazardous waste or obsolete cleaning chemicals and pesticides gathering dust in your garage, hidden in the corner of your basement or lurking under the sink. They can't go in your curbside trash container so what can you responsibly do with them to get them out of your home?

ReWorks provides Summit County residents with a safe and convenient option. They re-open for summertime service Thursday, June 2, 2016. Check out their website for the specific day and time they are open the rest of the summer to accept and recycle your household hazardous waste. Here's a list of waste they accept.

Unfortunately, ReWorks is only open to homeowners and renters who are residents of Summit County. If you're a business, commercial enterprise or non-profit, ReWorks will not be able to accept your waste; however, you can contact Rice Oil & Environmental and we can help.


We leave you now at...Russo's. After you've recycled your household hazardous waste and washed your hands real well, head on over to Russo's and treat yourself to some delicious Creole and Italian soul food. We love their fresh shucked, raw oysters, fresh fish specials or Creole Chicken Étouffée. Great dining experience at the front bar watching the action in the kitchen!
