‘Tox-Away Day’ at County Environmental Management

ALLEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Allen County Department of Environmental Management (ACDEM) says it will launch a weekly Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) drop-off program at their refurbished facility located at 2260 Carroll Road, Fort Wayne. The HHW drop-off program will be open to the public every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting Tuesday, July 10. Minimal fees and material limits will apply.

For many years, the Allen County Solid Waste Management District offered an annual Tox-Away Day in September as the only opportunity for residents to properly dispose of household hazardous materials. This year has brought a name change, program expansion, and new affiliation.
Tox-Away Day has been a popular program over the years and ACDEM recognizes there is a greater need for a weekly HHW drop-off program. ACDEM is proud to address this public need to residents and small businesses in Allen County.
