Landfill Gas to Energy Plant
Hazardous Waste Division
The Hazardous Waste Division provides a permanent collection center
along with a mobile collection program for household hazardous waste
and bio-medical waste. It insures proper packaging and disposal of
hazardous waste from the county wide programs and implements a
mercury vapor fluorescent program county wide. The division prevents
unauthorized waste from being disposed of at Baseline Solid Waste
Facility and educates businesses through on-site inspections to
improve management and disposal of hazardous waste. The Hazardous
Waste Division also investigates complaints and cooperates with
governmental agencies to provide hazardous waste compliance
assistance. Three times a year the division provides electronic
waste recycling events for county residents.
Marion County's Household Hazardous Waste division offers homeowners
two ways to dispose of household hazardous waste. The first, a
facility located at the Baseline Landfill, is open to homeowners
during the regular operating hours of the Landfill.
The second way to dispose of hazardous waste is at the
Recycling Centers. However, there are limitations on
the items and amounts that can be disposed of at these centers.
