Household waste collection set

    On Saturday, June 15,  the Van Buren Conservation District, with the support of Van Buren County and several county municipalities, will host the largest household recycling collection to date. The event is free to all Van Buren County residents and landowners, who will need to bring only an ID or municipal document showing they are a county resident or landowner to access the services for free.

What will be accepted at the collection?
    •Household Hazardous Waste – kitchen/bathroom cleaners, batteries, light bulbs, anti-freeze, solvents, acids, bases, aerosol cans (not empty), mercury, and more. Will not accept motor oil, ammunition, explosives, asbestos, or radioactive materials.

    •Lawn/Garden Chem-icals – small amounts of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides.
