AMNESTY DAY 2022

The Solid Waste and Recycling Department will be hosting Amnesty Day for the citizens of Madison County on May 25, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., at the Solid Waste and Recycling Center located at 2040 NE Rocky Ford Road. Amnesty Day is an opportunity for citizens to discard their hazardous household waste items at no cost. Because Madison County is required to pay for the disposal of its waste tires at a cost of $195.00 per ton, citizens should come prepared to pay for the disposal of their tires. This event is only hosted for citizens to dispose of such items and is not available for businesses. As per guidelines from the Department of Environmental Protection, businesses are required to have a hazardous waste disposal plan with other certified agencies to dispose of their waste. To ensure that the disposal of such items are consistent with the guidelines from EPA, and authorized in-county citizen usage, disposal of waste items will be careful documented. Citizens are urged to be attentive to the following safety tips to avoid injury as well as referring to the table of information outlining a description of hazardous household waste items and associated cost.

SAFETY TIPS

  1. Do not transport any liquids in an open container; containers must be closed.
  2. Take the time to segregate like items before transporting.
