Did you know that some items cannot be collected with your normal trash pickup due to safety concerns? Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is any unwanted household product labeled as flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive. Hazardous materials, if not properly disposed of, may have an adverse impact on the environment. Improper disposal of these products in your curbside container can contaminate drinking water, and seriously injure garbage and recycling collection and landfill employees. The Household Hazardous Waste Event is free to residents to ensure safe disposal.
There is no charge; however, residents will be required to provide proof of residency such as a recent city utility bill or driver’s license. This event is for residential hazardous waste only. Commercial waste will not be accepted. Please transport materials in a cardboard box in the trunk or truck bed of vehicles.
