Waste Not, Want Not

By Jillian Manning | June 18, 2022

When you finished this year’s spring cleaning, you probably found a pile of stuff that can’t go in your trash bin, like batteries, paint cans, and last year’s fertilizer. Good news: Both Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties have organized hazardous household waste events for this week. GT County residents can make an appointment for Thursday, June 23, at Accepted items include oil-based paint, solvents, automotive fluids, household cleaners, lawn and garden chemicals, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, and more. Those in Leelanau can drop off their items on Saturday, July 25, in the parking lot at Glen Lake School after making an appointment at or by calling (231) 256-9812. Leelanau will also be accepting electronics and documents for shredding. The day prior, also at Glen Lake School, the county will host a mattress ($5 each) and scrap tire ($1) recycling event. Sign up now to get all that waste you don’t want out of the garage!
