City releases new schedule for ToxDrop program

Warns against illegal dumping

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) recently announced a new schedule for Saturday ToxDrop locations.

Beginning June 1, Marion County residents can unload their household hazardous waste on the first three Saturdays of each month. After June 1, ToxDrop locations will be closed the fourth and fifth Saturday of each month and on all major holidays.

The new schedule and locations are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the first Saturday of each month at 7550 N. Lafayette Road, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the second Saturday of each month at 4925 S. Shelby St., and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. the third Saturday of each month at 9049 E. 10th St.

Additionally, residents can drop off their household hazardous waste during the week at the 1725 West St. location from 9 to 11 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The city encourages residents to properly dispose of all unwanted and unused household hazardous waste. Examples of materials that will be accepted at ToxDrop locations include antifreeze, brake fluid, batteries, drain cleaners, fluorescent light bulbs, glue and adhesives, paints, paint thinner, pesticides, pool chemicals, household thermometers, toilet bowl cleaners, used motor oil, and gasoline.

DPW also reminds citizens that any debris disposed of in public right-of-ways, private property, or city property classifies as illegal dumping. Illegal dumping commonly occurs in alleys, vacant lots, riverbanks, and heavily wooded areas. Illegally dumped debris can be tree limbs, appliances, full garbage bags, etc. Illegal dumping is punishable by fines of up to $2,500.

Illegal dumping on public property may be reported through the RequestIndy mobile app, online at www.indy.gov/RequestIndy, or by calling the Mayor’s Action Center (MAC) at 327-4MAC.
