As the New Year unfolds, another successful household hazardous waste community collection season is wrapping up. Since 2003, ERG has been conducting HHW collection events for municipalities and private organizations throughout Michigan and Ohio. We maintain a large network of specialized team members experienced to perform these events, many events running simultaneously across multiple sites. We have a fantastic team! We are efficient, safe, well organized and friendly. It has been our pleasure to interact with residents from communities around the state while recycling their household hazardous waste. ERG appreciates the participation of residents; this activity not only helps our business grow but also reduces the amount of toxic and hazardous materials going into the landfill. ERG maintains a full schedule of HHW events, corporate recycling events as well as permanent service locations and drop off locations in Livonia, MI, and Bowling Green, OH.

The end of the year brings re-organizing and industrial cleaning projects. Every industry that generates hazardous and non-hazardous waste cleans out storerooms, flam cabinets and the like to start the new year fresh. Companies usually find small amounts of miscellaneous chemicals throughout their facility, sometimes unidentified. ERG Environmental Services provides a Lab Pack service to properly handle these chemicals.
Lab Packs are small containers of unwanted, expired, or out of date chemicals which are ready to be removed from a facility or lab.
These containers are then inventoried, segregated and packed together with other compatible chemicals in the same outer container.
Lab packing must follow specific rules, regulations, and exceptions as outlined by DOT and RCRA. Improper packaging or handling could lead to dangerous conditions, health hazards, or substantial fines.

Many of our clients will be working on reorganizing projects, clearing out warehouse space and storage areas. Often, clients discover chemicals in small quantities that are obsolete, out of date, leaking or contaminated, even unknown. The proper packing, transportation and disposal of such chemicals is called a Lab Pack. ERG Environmental Services specializes in Lab packing services. Lab Packing is a commonly requested service from our client base although it is technically demanding. ERG uses our professional, highly trained staff to segregate, inventory, containerize and prepare the regulated documentation. ERG has over 25 years of experience in environmental services including chemical & lab packing in many industry segments.
The reasons for lab packing may be different, but clients share some common features. They have accumulated chemicals for many months, years, or even decades. The safety risks involved with continued accumulation is significant. The clients realize that the items are impractical to keep, and decide that the chemicals are not worth the risk of keeping them stored.
ERG provides turnkey lab pack services. Lab Packing and Chemical Packing must follow specific rules and regulations outlined by RCRA and DOT. Improper handling, labeling and packaging could lead to health hazards, dangerous conditions or substantial fines.
If you need to clear out or safely manage expired, contaminated, or unidentified chemicals in 5-gallon or smaller containers, your organization needs to adhere to regulations, keep incompatible wastes separate, and rely on ERG to handle your lab packing & compliance support needs.
From full-service recycling; material recovery, disposal and storage; comprehensive hazardous materials management and transport; and total site cleanup and remediation, ERG delivers solutions and capabilities quickly, cost-effectively, and with obsessive safety and professionalism.
ERG is a proud service provider for many communities within Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Each community event has individual requirements for participation, registration and accepted items. We take pride in well organized events that help keep communities beautiful.

Spring time brings Spring Cleaning, reorganizing and projects around the house for many of us. As we are purging our cabinets, basements, garages, and barns, let’s dispose of the household hazardous waste (HHW) properly. You can recycle HHW in two different ways. You can drop the HHW off at one of our two locations or attend the HHW recycling event in your community. ERG works with RRRASOC which stands for The Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC). The Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC) is an intergovernmental, municipal solid waste authority created in 1989. Their purpose is establishing and operating solid waste management projects that feature intergovernmental cooperation, economies of scale and a combination of environmental responsibility and fiscal soundness.
RRRASOC helps its member communities with cost-effective, environmentally responsible, and convenient waste and recycling programs, including recycling drop-off centers, household hazardous waste collection events and curbside pick-up collection. RRRASOC maintains a tradition of providing innovative and cost-effective services through cooperation and public/private partnerships, developing award-winning solid waste programs and improving services while controlling costs.
RRRASOC member communities include Farmington, Farmington Hills, Milford, Milford Township, Novi, South Lyon, Southfield, Walled Lake and Wixom. ERG Environmental Services is a proud partner with RRRASOC. We work together on RRRASOC HHW recycling community events.
WANT TO KNOW WHAT TO BRING? (Click on the blue link for the accepted items list, transportation tips, do’s & don’ts)
Household Hazardous Waste includes a variety of everyday household items, such as cleaners, paints, herbicides, insecticides, and solvents that exhibit the characteristics of regulated hazardous waste. Regulated hazardous waste means items that are flammable, combustible, corrosive, reactive or toxic and would be harmful to the environment if thrown into the trash which goes to a regular landfill.
HHW isn’t considered waste until you need to dispose of the items. If you are unsure if an item is hazardous, check the products label. Warnings such as “poison or toxic”, “flammable or ignitable”, “corrosive” indicate a HHW item. Cleaners that contain strong acids, bleach or ammonia are also hazardous.
Residents of RRRASOC Member Communities may bring household hazardous waste to household hazardous waste collection events. Those events provide residents with an opportunity to safely discard or recycle hazardous items, including electronic waste (which is commonly called E-Waste). If you are a resident of one of the RRRASOC member communities and are unable to attend any of the RRRASOC recycling events, you may drop of your HHW at ERG.
