April 4 Tox-Away Day Postponed

In order to abide by current restrictions in place to fight COVID-19, the Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District will be postponing the April 4 Tox-Away Day at Brownsburg High School. The District is working to determine an alternative date for the event and will notify the public via local news outlets, social media and its email newsletter.

Tox-Away Days are opportunities for Hendricks County residents to properly recycle or dispose of household hazardous wastes, medical sharps, unwanted medicines, tires, appliances, computer components and electronics.

Currently, four other Tox-Away Days are scheduled for the year. Residents living in any part of Hendricks County are welcome to use any event. Each Tox-Away Day is open from 8am to 1pm.

  • May 16 at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Danville
  • July 11 at Hickory Elementary School in Avon
  • September 19 at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Danville
  • October 10 at Plainfield Middle School

Many of the items and materials accepted for disposal and recycling at Tox-Away Days can be disposed of, recycled or donated for reuse every day via local organizations and waste management companies. Residents are encouraged to visit the District’s online Recycling Directory.
