GLRPPR Sector Resource: Improving Household Hazardous Waste Collection Options for East Central Illinois

Title:
Improving Household Hazardous Waste Collection Options for East Central Illinois

Abstract:
This background report contains information compiled as part of a study effort to develop a strategy to improve household hazardous waste (HHW) collection options available to residents of a seven-county study area in East Central Illinois. The report includes an overview of HHW collection activity statewide and a detailed review of existing HHW collection options in the study area as of January 2013. The report summarizes federal and state regulations relevant to HHW collection, best management practices associated with HHW, and challenges associated with HHW collection in the study area. The report includes input from interested persons and stakeholders regarding preferred HHW collection options; a review of cost comparisons typical of start-up, operation, and processing of a HHW collection facility vs. a one-day HHW collection in Illinois; and a preliminary "strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats" (SWOT) assessment regarding three potential HHW collection options for the study area.
