Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Saturday, october 27, 2018

Now's your chance to dispose of all those left over household chemicals, lawn and garden products and automotive materials that you've never known what to do with for FREE.

For a full list of accepted items click here.


Effective April 2, 2018, The Resource Authority in Sumner County (RASCO) will begin construction and repairs to the Transfer Station located at 625 Rappahannock Wire Road, Gallatin, Tennessee that will affect operations and operating hours in the coming months. 

Other areas of the site will be under construction while the Transfer station is open for business.  Damaged concrete will be removed and replaced, the entrance will be widened, and new weigh scales will be added. Improvements will require users to follow traffic controls and flaggers established with each phase of the work.

We ask for your patience and cooperation during construction. For more information or questions, please contact Larry Wright at 615-452-1114.
