Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility

Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are household items which may threaten human health or the environment and should be disposed of properly when they can no longer be used for their intended purposes.  It is illegal to throw hazardous materials in the trash.  Instead, take them to a HHW collection facility.

  • The containers are sturdy, not leaking, and sealed.
  • The waste is in its original container or one that is properly labeled.
  • Waste is packed in a single layer and in containers that are securely packed in your vehicle to prevent spills.

Never mix materials!
