Oakland County household hazardous waste dropoff events promote environmental stewardship and safeguard communities

NoHaz, a consortium of communities in northern Oakland County for disposing household hazardous waste, has scheduled four collection events April through September, giving residents of these communities convenient opportunities to get rid of everything from outdated computers and dead batteries to paints, pesticides and more.

“Our NoHaz household hazardous waste collection events demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship and empower Oakland County residents to responsibly dispose of hazardous materials,” County Executive Dave Coulter said.

All 2024 NoHaz collection events run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays:

• April 27, Oakland County Service Center Campus, 1200 NorthTelegraph Road., Pontiac

• June 1, Oxford Middle School, 1420 Lakeville Road, Oxford

• July 20, Kensington Church, 4640 S. Lapeer Road, Orion Township

• Sept. 14, Oakland County Service Center Campus, 1200 NorthTelegraph Road, Pontiac

Registration opens approximately three weeks prior to each collection event at NoHaz.com. Those unable to register online will be able to complete forms at the collection events.

Akzo Nobel, a global company in Pontiac dedicated to sustainability, is sponsoring the NoHaz collection events. Their partnership helps ease rising costs for member communities and residents.

NoHaz member communities include Addison Township, Clarkston, Groveland Township, Independence Township, Lake Angelus, Lake Orion, Leonard, Oakland Township, Orion Township, Oxford Township, Oxford Village, Pontiac, Rose Township, Springfield Township and Waterford Township.

Residents of NoHaz member communities may dispose of their household hazardous waste for a nominal fee of $15 or $30, or at no charge, depending on their community. Any Oakland County resident who does not reside in a NoHaz community may dispose of acceptable materials at any collection event for a fee of $130. They may also contact their city, village, or township to ask if another program is available or click on this link to view a map of available household hazardous waste programs in the county.
