CCWA hosts Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day in the spring to give Clayton County residents the chance to drop off a wide variety of items we often have stored around the house that have a detrimental effect on our environment. This event is hosted by our Stormwater Utility and is free.

Our 2022 event was held on April 23 at our W.B. Casey Water Resource Recovery Facilty off Flint River Road in Jonesboro. Thank you to the 432 residents who helped us properly dispose of so many items! Our next event will be held in April 2023.
