It is very important that no hazardous materials are co-mingled with the regular weekly refuse. This includes paints, herbicides, pesticides, oils, antifreeze, and other such materials. Residents may take these items to the Montgomery County Moraine Transfer Facility, 1001 Encrete Lane, Moraine and drop them off free of charge. The drop off center is open from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays. See Montgomery County's Hazardous Waste Disposal website for additional information.
Alternatively, residents can request a free pick up through the Oakwood Rotary Club. The Rotary Club offers a program every three months where volunteer Rotarians travel the community to collect and dispose of hazardous waste. To schedule a pickup, please call (937) 296-5155. While the service is free, the Oakwood Rotary Club accepts donations to be used for club service projects and grants.
The 2021 collection dates are Saturday, April 24, Saturday, July 24 and Saturday, October 23.
