Freeuse Center

The Product Freeuse Center at the McLeod County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility is ready and waiting for you.  What is the Product FreeuseCenter, you ask?  It is an area operated within the HHW Facility consisting of usable products that were brought to the facility by residents like you.  Rather than process these items as waste, the opportunity is given to residents to REUSE them , thus reducing waste.

Some of the items available in the Product Freeuse Center include latex, exterior and interior, oil based paints, paint thinners, varnish removers, cleaning products, rust inhibitor paints, automotive items, adhesives, sealers, wood stains, aerosol paints and other miscellaneous items.  These products vary in availability and quantity but a good selection is generally available.   

The McLeod County Household Hazardous Waste Facility is located at 1065 5th Avenue SE in Hutchinson. In addition to accepting the materials listed below, the facility houses the Product Exchange. The Facility is open year round every Tuesday - Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 PM.  This service is provided free of charge to the residents of both McLeod & Sibley County.
