Household Chemical Drop-off Event

Clean up!

Green up!

Free up!

It feels great to free up storage space while cleaning and “greening” your home: drop off your unwanted oil-based paints, cleaners, automotive fluids, yard & garden chemicals, and much more.  It also makes your home safer for you and responders, in case of an emergency.

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY: to prevent traffic jams (and long waits in line!) this event is by appointment. Call 231-348-0640 to make an appointment.

Materials from Emmet County households are accepted free of charge; funding comes from Solid Waste Transfer Station revenues (what is paid to dump garbage). Residents of other counties and qualifying businesses may use the service, but we must charge $1 per pound to cover our costs.
