A materials collection form should be filled out by each resident who utilizes the event if disposing of items not in original containers. Businesses should contact Environmental Programs for disposal options.
Henderson County Solid Waste makes safety our #1 priority. Some of the chemicals we accept during these events can be dangerous and affect people in different ways. While we have trained, professional staff and safety personnel on-site handling these chemicals, we ask that residents unload their own vehicles onto the designated tables, but please- do not approach the white chemical testing tent at any point. We kindly ask that you do not bring pets to this event. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
*Please note that we respect your privacy and use these data collection forms to process the materials safely and expediently. Your information is not shared. Safety and medical personnel may access the forms in the event of an emergency.
