Rush County Solid Waste Management District

Tox-Away Center

Clean Green Rush Tox-Away Center is open to all Rush County residents on the first Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to noon.  It is located just beyond the animal shelter as 225 South Smiley Avenue.  Items accepted for disposal are oil-based paints and stains (no latex paint), pesticides, insecticides, aerosols, acids, bases, and other household chemicals, motor oil, gasoline, kerosene, antifreeze, non-alkaline batteries, fluorescent bulbs, mercury, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and electronics (anything with a circuit board).  At this time there is no charge for these items.

Helping to keep Rush County CLEAN and GREEN by promoting pollution prevention:

  • Maintaining and improving a system to effectively reduce the waste stream to landfills by promoting the reduction, re-use, and recycling of materials.
  • Providing a safe disposal location for household hazardous waste.
  • Educating community on the values and methods of recycling and pollution prevention.
