Household Hazardous Waste Events

This is the last reminder for the Household Hazardous Waste events organized by the Nebraska Loess Hills Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council.  Three separate events are scheduled:

        October 14, 2016, 3-6:00pm at the Wastewater Plant (Willow & South 16th) in Dakota City;

        October 15, 2016, 8:30-11:00am at the softball fields parking lot (13th St turn East) in Tekamah;

        October 15, 2016, 12:30-3:30pm at the Waste Disposal & Recycling Center (1251 E Sherman) in West Point;


Mark your calendar and bring in paint, pesticides, herbicides, oil, antifreeze, cleaning chemicals, solvents, varnish, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, and car batteries.  The collection is FREE and will accept most household quantities of chemicals.  The collection will NOT ACCEPT tires, electronic equipment, appliances, PCBs, picric acid, science lab materials, radioactive materials or biological hazards.


Collections are open to all households (no businesses!), and participants do not have to live in the town hosting

the event.  Onsite personnel are required to accept and sort hazardous waste as it is received, so items must not be dropped off prior to the scheduled event times.


These collections are a joint effort by The Nebraska Loess Hills RC&D Council, the Papio-Missouri River NRD, the Lower Elkhorn NRD,

City of Dakota City, City of Tekamah, City of West Point, Keep Northeast Nebraska Beautiful and the Winnebago EPA. 


This event is funded through a grant from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Jean Schultz at (402)685-4020.
