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. Environmental problems can arise, however, if items are not disposed of properly.

Two days each year (May 5 and September 8, 2012), the Village of Pleasant Prairie, in conjunction with Kenosha County, provides Household Hazardous Waste Collection.

You may bring any products that say: caution, combustible, corrosive, danger, flammable, pesticide, poison, reactive, toxic, or warning. They will be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. Items collected include: household cleaning products, bug sprays, batteries, vehicle fluids and cleaners, oil based paints, paint-related products, fluorescent bulbs, pool chemicals and garden/outdoor related products.

We are not able to accept: biological material or medical waste, propane cylinders, explosives, radioactive materials, latex paint (not considered hazardous), or tires. For a complete list of accepted waste products or for more information, please click here or call 262.925.6700.
