Tox Drop


Citizens of Marion County can use this program to properly dispose of all their unwanted and unused household hazardous waste (HHW).  Over the last decade, the ToxDrop program has diverted annually in excess of 1.0 million pounds of HHW from the city’s sewers, waterways, and landfills.  ToxDrop is an Indianapolis/Marion County program managed by the Department of Public Works, located at 1725 West Street, Bldg 1, Indianapolis, Indiana 46225. Through year-round Saturday collection site locations and periodic ToxAway Day events, the ToxDrop Program has made significant advancements to help residents properly and safely dispose of HHW.

Residents are limited to disposing of twenty-gallons (20) of liquid waste or seventy-five (75) pounds of solid waste, per visit.
