The Henderson County Solid Waste Division will resume its annual Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collections this spring. Event dates are scheduled for the second Tuesdays in March, April, and May (March 12, April 9, and May 14) from 8:00am until noon at the Henderson County Convenience Center, located at 265 Convenience Center Drive, Hendersonville, NC 28791. Last year, the spring 2018 events collected over 24,000 pounds of household chemicals.
The 2019 Paint Recycling Program will operate at the Transfer Station during the same dates and times. All paint and paint-related materials (except spray paints) incur a $2 per gallon container fee, regardless of the amount within. No dried or solid paints will be accepted. Please note there is a 30-gallon per individual per event limit on paint recycling during this program. Details on the paint recycling program are available online at www.hcrecycles.org.
The Solid Waste Division hosts the HHW events annually for the citizens of Henderson County to provide safe recycling and disposal of household chemicals, cleaners, pesticides, and insecticides. Mercury-containing bulbs and related items are not accepted during this event, but can be recycled at the Convenience Center for free Monday-Friday from residences. For a detailed list of acceptable HHW items or mercury products, please visit www.hcrecycles.org.
Items brought to the Convenience Center during HHW events should be kept in original packaging and should be handled with utmost care. Unlabeled items must be accompanied by a material ID form, either at the event or prior to the event through www.hcrecycles.org. Business and commercial wastes will not be accepted. Please contact Environmental Programs for proper disposal options by calling (828) 694-6524.
To provide quality service and safety during these events, residents are asked to please unload their own materials at the Convenience Center and Transfer Station and leave pets at home. Additional questions can be directed to (828) 697-4505 or (828) 694-6524.
