The facility is available for all residents of Whiteside County based on the honor system.
The drop-off facility is located behind the office of the Whiteside County Highway Department at 18819 Lincoln Rd. (U.S. 30), Morrison, IL. The drop-off facility consists of a modified cargo container that is tan in color and has a window on the east side, with a sliding door, which provides access to a table on the inside of the container to place items. If the table is full or you have larger items that won’t fit in the door items may be dropped off on the concrete ramp alongside the facility.
The County has had Household Hazardous Waste collection events in the past. Typically these are coordinated with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, who covers the cost for the collection event which tend to be very expensive. Typically these State-sponsored events allow residents who are outside of the jurisdiction to drop off waste at these events. The County is in the process of working with agencies to establish the next event. Until that time you can visit the IEPA website for event locations and permanent drop-off sites.
