The Ecology Action Center is holding a locally funded Household Hazardous Waste Collection for McLean County residents in partnership with the City of Bloomington, Town of Normal, and McLean County, among others. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 17, 2015 at Mitsubishi Motors North America at 100 N. Mitsubishi Motorway in Normal, Illinois. This event is open to McLean County residents only and may only accept residential household hazardous waste.
This one-day event will cost at an estimated $180,000. While the City of Bloomington, Town of Normal and Mclean County have agreed to provide a significant portion of the funding, private contributions are necessary for the remaining portion.
With your support we can bring back another HHW Collection to McLean County. McLean County residents will have the opportunity to safely dispose of pesticides, oil-based paints, mercury thermometers, old gasoline, cleaning products, insecticides, lawn chemicals, and other hazardous materials. The safe disposal of hazardous material is essential to protecting our water supplies and our health.

Please make checks out to “Ecology Action Center” and mail to: Ecology Action Center, Attn: HHW Fund, 202 W College Ave, Normal, IL 6171. All contributions are tax deductible.

The fall 2015 HHW Collection will be successful only with your support.
