SPRINGFIELD - Illinois EPA Director John J. Kim today announced the execution of a new Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Madison County, to establish and support a new long-term Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection site in the Metro East area. Historically, Illinois EPA has included four long-term collection locations, all in northern Illinois, as part of its HHW collection program. By executing this IGA, Madison County becomes the first Illinois EPA-supported permanent HHW collection south of Naperville. The site will open to the public beginning November 6.
