NORTHERN OAKLAND COUNTY HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION & DISPOSAL

NOHAZ is an amazing program that helps residents within Oakland County dispose of items and materials that their normal curbside recycling won't take.

Some communities charge residents to use this service, so be sure to check with your local office for details.


For residents of:
Addison Township, Brandon Township, Groveland Township, Independence Township, Lake Angelus, Lake Orion, Leonard, Oakland Township, Orion Township, Ortonville, Oxford, Oxford Township, Pontiac, Rochester, Rochester Hills, Rose Township, Springfield Township and Waterford Township.
