Hazardous Waste Facility

The Naperville Household Hazardous Waste Facility on Fort Hill Drive could see a major reduction in operations or even be shut down. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency is putting a cap on the facility’s expenses in 2018 at $250,000, less than half of the $516,000 paid in 2017. Any costs past that would need to be covered by the City of Naperville and the other communities that use the facility. The current agreement expires on December 31.
