Safely dispose of your household hazardous material for FREE at one of our spring events. Drop off your chemicals, fertilizers, aerosols, batteries, light bulbs, propane tanks and more to be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. It’s worth the effort.
Know before you go:
• Do not attend the event if you are sick.
• Residents must remain in their vehicle at all times.
• Put hazardous waste in the box of your truck or trunks, not in the backseat, to maintain physical distancing when unloading.
• Bring fuel and oil in containers that may be left behind for recycling/disposal.
• Material should be safely sealed in clearly marked containers.
• Containers will not be returned once handled by event staff.
• Garbage, recyclables and electronics are not accepted. In an effort to limit cross-contamination and interactions with event staff, please avoid bringing these materials.
• Tires will not be accepted.
Commercial loads are not permitted.
