Household hazardous waste includes: pesticides, herbicides, pool chemicals, solvents, polishers, and gasoline.
All hazardous waste received at the County centers are either recycled or treated in an environmentally sound matter. Since these types of household hazardous waste don't recycle easily or inexpensively, the County staff recommends that you buy pesticides in very small quantities, give leftovers to a neighbor to utilize or use substitutes that are less toxic. Please bring waste in original containers or label containers with name of product. Do not mix chemicals in a trash bag. Please bring items in a box or other container so that items can be seen. The County packs and sends out for recycling and treatment, pounds of hazardous waste annually. Through education and smart shopping we hope this volume will continue to decline. Expensive recycling costs can be true for other items also, so please shop wisely.
The only items we DO NOT accept are biomedical wastes, explosives or radioactive wastes.
