Tox-Away Day Rescheduled for August 29th at Brownsburg East Middle School

Earlier this year, the Tox-Away Day that was to be held April 4th at the Brownsburg High School was canceled due to restrictions in place to fight COVID-19. That event has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 29th at Brownsburg East Middle School from 8 am to 1 pm. Please note the location change.

Tox-Away Days are opportunities for Hendricks County households to properly dispose of and recycle chemicals, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, electronics, appliances, tires and more. Regulations prohibit wastes from businesses or other organizations from being accepted at Tox-Away Days. Visit HendricksSolidWaste.com for more information including a list of accepted items and fees that apply for the recycling of televisions, appliances and tires.

Residents are reminded that latex paint is not to be brought to Tox-Away Day for disposal as it is water-based and non-hazardous. Instead, it should be dried out and disposed with household trash. A quick video demonstration is available at HendricksSolidWaste.com/latexpaintdrying.

Lenn Detwiler, Executive Director of the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District said, “The Brownsburg School Corporation has been very helpful as we’ve worked together to get this event rescheduled. We know residents in and around Brownsburg look forward to Tox-Away Day and we’re pleased to be able to find a way to offer a collection event there this year.”

Additional Tox-Away Days for this year are scheduled for September 19th at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds and October 10th at Plainfield Middle School. Each event is open from 8 am to 1 pm.

Residents with questions about Tox-Away Day are encouraged to visit HendricksSolidWaste.com or call the District’s office at (317) 858-6070.

The Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District promotes recycling, waste reduction and proper waste management in Hendricks County.
