Hazardous Waste Collection
The Village, in conjunction with Kenosha County and Waste Management/Pheasant Run, provides Household Hazardous Waste Collection two times per year. Household hazardous wastes are common products found in the home. People usually store these materials for a time and eventually discard the unwanted items and their containers.

When products are used according to label directions, most are not hazardous. They may become hazardous, however, if you use or store them improperly. Environmental problems can arise if you dispose of products improperly. DO NOT BURN, BURY, DUMP, (in yard, toilet or down a storm sewer) or MIX leftover products. Chemical containers should not be reused for any other purpose. You can dispose of your unwanted hazardous waste during the next Hazardous Waste Collection.
