No! Material, such as used motor oil, antifreeze, paint etc., are hazardous. The street drains are connected to sewers which may discharge directly to a near-by stream or river, receiving no treatment.
All such materials should be recycled or disposed of at an approved location.
Hancock County Residents have the opportunity to bring their old paints, household chemicals and other Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) to Litter Landing for recycling. This program is open to Hancock County residents only. They do not accept HHW from businesses or organizations.
Litter Landing accepts HHW during April, May, June, July and August, on Mondays only from 10am-1pm. Collections begin April 10, 2017.
