The first drop-off of the year for the Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Program will be Saturday, May 1.

“The Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Program is a free program and a great opportunity for county, non-City residents to dispose of their household hazardous waste in an environmentally friendly way,” County Executive Jim Kreuser said.

Residents of the City of Kenosha already have a free Household Hazardous Waste Program through the Kenosha Water Utility.

For people living in Kenosha County, outside Kenosha, the Kenosha County Household Hazardous Waste Program was established. This year, county residents will have two opportunities to dispose of their Household Hazardous Waste for free:

May 1 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kenosha County Center, 19600 75th St. (Highway 50), Bristol.

Sept. 11 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pleasant Prairie Municipal Center, 8600 Green Bay Road, Pleasant Prairie.

This program is sponsored in full by Waste Management/Pheasant Run RDF.
