The Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District will be postponing the April 4 Tox-Away Day at Brownsburg High School. The HCSWMD is working to determine an alternative date for the event and will notify the public via local news outlets, social media and its email newsletter.
Tox-Away Days are opportunities for Hendricks County residents to properly recycle or dispose of household hazardous wastes, medical sharps, unwanted medicines, tires, appliances, computer components and electronics.
Currently four other Tox-Away Days are scheduled for the year. Resident living in any part of Hendricks County are welcome to use any event. Each Tox-Away Day is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Many of the items and materials accepted for disposal and recycling at Tox-Away Days can be disposed of, recycled or donated for reuse every day via local organizations and waste management companies. Residents are encouraged to visit the District’s online Recycling Directory to find alternatives.
Opening of Yard Waste Recycling Centers Postponed
Additionally, the opening of the District’s Yard Waste Recycling Centers in Brownsburg and Plainfield is being postponed to May 1.
These centers accept brush, limbs, grass clippings, leaves and other organic matter for recycling from Hendricks County households. Fees are assessed for use of the centers and are based on the volume of material recycled.
Residents can receive email updates and reminders about the District’s Tox-Away Days, Yard Waste Recycling Centers and other important waste and recycling information by subscribing to the District’s email newsletter, The ReSource, at http://HendricksSolidWaste.com/the-resource.
