Tons of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) diverted from the waste stream

Measure Description/Definition

Recognizing a threat to the environment and human health, the City of Olathe established the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) division to manage potentially hazardous materials. The City encourages citizens to dispose HHW in an environmentally-responsible manner, and supports this goal through year-round and special event waste disposal programs.

This measure illustrates the tons of materials collected at the the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility that are recycled or reused instead of sent to the landfill.

Target Determination

Meet or exceed the total tons of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) that has been diverted on average over the previous 36 months.

Analysis

As of Q3-18, 93.45 tons of household hazardous waste (HHW) has been diverted from the waste stream in 2018. This amount is 11.25 tons below the current target, but HHW disposal amounts can be variable and unpredictable.
