Household Hazardous Waste

Keep household hazardous waste (HHW) and food waste out of your bin.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is waste that should not be thrown away with the rest of your regular garbage. When HHW is thrown into your one bin, it could contaminate recyclables – stopping them from reaching their highest potential! Even worse, they could contaminate our groundwater and hurt our environment. HHW includes everything from e-waste like phones and televisions to medications, light bulbs, oil-based paints, paint thinner, household chemicals and more. HHW require special handling when disposing.

We’ve got you covered. Our waste haulers offer curbside pick-up for limited types of HHW by simply making an appointment or you can take your HHW to a convenient drop-off facility. Learn more about the types of HHW and how to dispose of each properly within your area using the colored-coded graphics below.
