Household Hazardous Waste

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
Household Hazardous Waste is collected at both of our Collection Facilities click here for days on which HHW is accepted.

We accept materials such as used oil, oil-based paints, fluorescent lights, solvents, gasoline, pesticides, herbicides, and various other cleaners and products used in residential homes. These items should not be put in with your regular trash. Your trash goes to a landfill, where it is buried in the ground. These chemicals can leach into the soil, potentially polluting the groundwater and air.

All HHW materials are collected, sorted, packaged and transported offsite for proper treatment, recycling or disposal.

The lists below are some of the most common items we see at our collection facility.

We accept personal waste only businesses must contract with an environmental contractor. Contact us for list of vendors.
