Trumbull County Collection Facility

Household Hazardous Waste - Electronics - Appliance Recycling

The Trumbull County Collection Facility is an outlet for residents of Geauga and Trumbull County to safely dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), Electronics (e-waste) and appliances.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
We accept materials such as used oil, oil-based paints, fluorescent lights, solvents, gasoline, pesticides, herbicides, and various other cleaners and products used in residential homes. These items should not be put in with your regular trash. Your trash goes to a landfill, where it is buried in the ground. These chemicals can leach into the soil, potentially polluting the groundwater and air.

All HHW materials are collected, sorted, packaged and transported offsite for proper treatment, recycling or disposal.

Household Hazardous Waste collection will begin Wednesday, April 20th and continue each Wednesday through October.  HHW is also accepted on Special Waste Saturdays.

Electronics (e-waste) 
The Collection Facility also accepts electronic items such as computer equipment, stereos, televisions, DVD players, VCRs, phones, fans, etc., as well as small Freon bearing appliances for recycling.

Many old electronic devices (e-waste) contain toxic substances that include lead, mercury, cadmium, beryllium, polyvinyl chloride and chromium. Like the HHW materials described above, e-waste tossed in your regular trash is buried in a landfill, where these chemicals can leach into the soil, potentially polluting the groundwater and air.
Also, recycling e-waste saves energy and raw materials. Fewer raw materials need to be drawn from nature to create new devices.

Some larger household appliances contain substances like Freon, CFCs, HCFCs contaminated oils, and mercury and need to have these materials removed before disposal. You can bring these types of items (A/C units, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, freezers, microwaves, etc.) to our collection facility for proper disposal or recycling. 

We can also accept appliances made primarily of metal for scrapping.   

E-waste and appliances are collected all year round on Tuesdays and  Wednesdays

If you are unsure if something you want to dispose of belongs in your trash, please call us and ask!

We cannot accept any materials from commercial operations/businesses.
