Commercial wastes cannot be accepted.


The Health Department also accepts mercury thermometers for recycling and recommends that all area residents replace these dangerous instruments with safer digital devices. Mercury is a nerve toxin which accumulates in the body and can damage the brain, spinal cord, kidneys and liver. If mercury spills from a broken thermometer and is not carefully and thoroughly cleaned up, it will continue to evaporate, reaching potentially harmful levels in indoor air. Mercury thermometers may be dropped off at the Health Department any time during business hours; no appointment is required. Wrap thermometers in plastic and place them in a sealed container (such as a disposable plastic jar, bottle or tub) for transport.


Television and computer monitors contain significant amounts of lead and should not be disposed of with household trash. Kent County operates a free collection program for all residential electronics equipment, including televisions, computers, video games, fax machines, VCRs and radios. Equipment can be dropped off at Grand Rapids area Goodwill Stores or the South Kent Landfill, 300 100th St. SW, Grand Rapids. Landfill hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
