Neighboring Counties Host Household Hazardous Waste Collection
Although Rutherford County will not receive a Household Hazardous Waste Collection (HHW) from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) during the spring of 2013, neighboring counties will host collections. Citizens are encouraged to take advantage of these events to properly dispose of unwanted hazardous materials. Many of the items targeted for collection are flammable, corrosive, reactive, or toxic and should not be thrown in the garbage.

The collection will not accept:

ELECTRONIC WASTE should be diverted from this collection and is accepted every Tuesday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 1140 Haley Road in Murfreesboro. Please call (615) 898-7739 for further details about electronic waste.
Questions? Call (615) 542-4633
This is a great opportunity to safeguard your home from potentially dangerous chemicals. It is hoped that Rutherford County will receive an HHW collection from TDEC in November 2013, but please refer to www.rutherfordcountytn.gov/environmental at a later date for more local information.
