Lake County Hazardous Waste Collection

All the collections will be held at the Fairgrounds in Painesville Township from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and are specifically for Lake County residents. Items will not be accepted from commercial, business, or industrial customers, nor residents from outside of Lake County.
For the time being, and due to an abundance of caution, various COVID-19 safety requirements will remain in effect—including masks being required by residents delivering items, as well as site personnel overseeing the events. All accepted items must be in the trunk area of the vehicle; items located in the front or back seats will not be accepted at the collections. Items on trailers will only be accepted at the Tire and Hazardous Waste Collections.
The Hazardous Waste Collections will be held on June 5 and September 25. Keeping substances in their original containers or marking them, if possible, is recommended to shorten the processing times. If residents have a gasoline mixture in a container, the gasoline container can be emptied on-site and returned to the resident while in line. All household hazardous waste collected during these events will be recycled or destroyed safely by neutralization or incineration. There are no fees associated with this collection.
