Eaton County Solid Waste Ordinance of 1993

Programs and collection events coordinated by the Department of Resource Recovery are made possible through a surcharge paid by Eaton County residents on their waste hauling bill at a rate of $0.60 per month. A copy of the ordinance can be found here


Programs are designed to assist residents in the disposal of everyday household goods deemed hazardous to the environment if improperly handled. A list of those programs and events are as follows: 

  • Batteries
  • Cooking Oil
  • Electronics
  • Household Hazardous Waste
  • Medical Sharps
  • Mercury
  • Scrap Tires

Funding is also made available to local recycling programs through a grant process. All of these things are made possible due to the Eaton County Solid Waste Ordinance of 1993 (PDF)
