Household Hazardous Waste Facility

The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility inspects, packages and processes residential waste for disposal or reuse. HHW staff also provides educational materials to the public at schools and other local events. The facility relies on voluntary participation of citizens. Staff consists of one certified HHW coordinator and occasional assistance from sanitation employees.

Many products used in our homes contain the same ingredients as industrial waste, yet are exempt from disposal regulation. Leftover products or those unused for over a year are unlikely ever to be used, yet the risk of spills or accidental poisoning of children or pets increases the longer the product remains in the home. The HHW facility provides a means for citizens to drop off these hazardous products at no charge.
