Household hazardous waste collection programs

Some counties and municipalities conduct annual collections of household hazardous wastes, while others have permanent collection facilities or sponsor curbside pickup programs.
  • Household chemical waste collections are limited to residents of the county or municipality that sponsors the event or facility.
  • Proof of residency is usually required.
  • There may be a fee to help defray costs of the program.
  • Call ahead to determine acceptable wastes and to confirm the date and time.
