The City of Watseka will host a waste collection event this fall. There will be more details announced. Illinois EPA Director John J. Kim announced the agency is resuming Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collections in the fall of 2010. Details will be announced. The collections provide residents an opportunity to safely dispose of unused or leftover household products commonly found in homes at no cost. Due to precautions related to COVID-19, most of the spring 2020 events were postponed. Illinois EPA has scheduled six sites for the fall with additional events being scheduled for the spring of 2021. As with past events, all Illinois EPA HHW collections are contactless for the safety of participants.
There will be a collection in Watseka October 10. The site is yet to be determined. A date is also set at Kankakee Community College for September 26.
