Most household chemicals are hazardous and improper disposal is a growing problem. It’s extremely important that we all know how to identify which products are hazardous and dispose of them properly.
Each year, we participate in a regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day where residents can bring unwanted household chemicals for safe disposal.
Household chemicals that require proper disposal
FROM THE YARD
Fertilizer with pesticides
FROM THE HOUSE
FROM THE GARAGE
FROM THE WORKBENCH
Lead and oil based paint/stain/finish
What not to bring to Hazardous Waste Collection Day
- Do not bring EXPLOSIVES or ASBESTOS.
- LATEX PAINT is actually not hazardous! Learn how to dispose of latex paint on our Transfer Station page.
- ANTIFREEZE and OIL (new or used) will not be accepted
- EMPTY CONTAINERS are not hazardous! You can place them right in your regular trash.
