Which HHW Items Do We Accept?
Some jobs around the home may require the use of products containing hazardous components that are flammable, corrosive, toxic, or reactive. Some of these products are identified by such words as "warning, " "danger," "toxic," "corrosive," "irritant," "flammable" or "caution" on their labels.
When HHW is disposed of in our trash cans, it can contaminate landfills, and subsequently, our groundwater. When dumped onto the ground or poured into the storm sewer, HHW can contaminate surface water. In either case, water contamination results in higher water treatment costs and has a detrimental effect on the ecosystem.
You can make a difference by bringing these items to the HHW Facility so they can be properly disposed for a cleaner and safer environment. Click here for tips on how to safely transport your HHW items to our facility.
Please place your empty containers (except for aerosol cans) in your regular trash or recycling bin.
