Although Riley County is the host county for the Big Lakes Regional Household Hazardous Waste Program, we ask that you take household hazardous waste to your home county. They are staffed to support you, where we are staffed to receive HHW from Riley County residents only. We support other counties within our region by picking up their materials once they have prepared them for us to take for disposal. The eleven counties we serve are: Clay, Dickinson, Geary, Marion, Marshall, Morris, Nemaha, Pottawatomie, Riley, Wabaunsee and Washington counties. Some of those counties do accept Business Waste as well, so we ask businesses to take it to your home county. However, if your county does not take business waste and are one of the eleven counties in our region, we can take business waste from you but must be pre-approved by your home county and our facility before we can accept any waste, as there will be a charge.
