Clayton County Conservation is pleased to host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, May 13th from 9am-noon. Any Clayton County resident wishing to dispose of hazardous waste must call 1-877-982-4288 to set up an appointment. When you call for an appointment, we will determine if you are eligible to use our services, if the materials you plan to bring are acceptable, and we can get an idea of the quantities for staffing and equipment reasons. This is a free program offered by a grant through the Winneshiek County Solid Waste Agency.

Clayton County Recycling, Inc. will have a dumpster available for household appliances to be recycled for any Clayton County resident. You will need to be able to unload items into the dumpster so bring help. Appointments are required to judge the amount of dumpster space needed. Call 563-245-1516 to schedule your drop-off time.
