Household Hazardous Waste Collection
Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Household hazardous waste includes items like: pesticides, herbicides, pool chemicals, solvents, polishers, and gasoline.

All hazardous waste received at the County centers are either recycled or treated in an environmentally sound matter. Since these types of household hazardous waste don't recycle easily or inexpensively, the County staff recommends that you buy pesticides in very small quantities, give leftovers to a neighbor to utilize or use substitutes that are less toxic.

The County packs and sends out for recycling and treatment, on average, 25,000 to 33,000 pounds of hazardous waste annually.  Through education and smart shopping we hope this volume will continue to decline. Expensive recycling costs can be true for other items also, so please shop wisely.

The only items we DO NOT accept are biomedical wastes, explosives or radioactive wastes, items which you are not likely to have at home anyways.

For more information on household biomedical waste disposal, please visit our Sharp's Program information page.

Businesses are restricted from utilizing our centers for hazardous waste collection. As a matter of fact, businesses that cannot show receipts for their hazardous waste disposal are in violation of all hazardous waste rules including Federal, State and County laws.  These violations could be very risky to you and your business and do not go unpunished.
