Get voucher before event

To control vehicle traffic and quantities of hazardous waste to be disposed, vouchers are required. Vouchers may be picked up at the Republic Services of Holland scale house before the collection date. Hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

You will need a valid ID and a current account with Republic to receive a voucher.

Vouchers are only valid for the date noted, must be presented at drop-off and will not be issued on the day of the event.

There is a limit of 200 pounds of material per voucher.

Because of the legal chain of custody required on hazardous waste, you will be required to sign a disposal form. Republic Service reserves the right to reject any items.
