What happened to the City of Lebanon's Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program?

The City of Lebanon announced that, effective December 31, 2023, the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program has been discontinued at our public works facility. This decision was made due to reductions in grant funding. While we acknowledge the value this program added to our community and thank our residents for their participation, we are also committed to guiding you towards alternative solutions for hazardous waste disposal.

Residents can contact the Lake Area Solid Waste Management District at (573) 723-0079 for information on locating nearby HHW collection centers. These centers ensure that hazardous materials are disposed of safely and in an environmentally responsible manner.

In addition, the city will continue to provide other sustainable waste management services. The Lebanon Public Works facility on West Commercial still accepts yard waste, plastics #1 & #2, cardboard, aluminum cans, metal cans, scrap metal, and metal.

For specific items, here are some alternative disposal options:

Automotive Products:

  • O’Reilly Auto - Lebanon: Batteries and used oil. Call (417) 532-3188.
  • Sawyer Tires - Lebanon: Tire disposal at $3 per tire (3-4 tires per visit). Call (417) 991-3590.
  • Autozone - Lebanon: Used oil (5 gallons per person per visit), filters, batteries, and tires. Call (417) 588-5887.

  • Hillcrest Education Center: Computers, TVs, and other electronic devices. Call (417) 657-6008.
  • Lowes Lebanon: Light bulb disposal. Call (417) 588-6970.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we transition to these new arrangements and remain dedicated to maintaining a clean and sustainable environment in Lebanon. Thank you for your continued commitment to responsible waste disposal.
