Household Hazardous Waste

Household Hazardous Waste

To help residents dispose of oil-based paint, pesticides, automotive fluids and other hazardous products found in the home, the Solid Waste District offers a countywide Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program.

Examples of household hazardous waste include oil based paint, solvents, used motor oil, automotive fluids, lawn and garden products, pesticides, pool chemicals and household cleaners. 

Household hazardous waste is collected from residents by the city service department and is delivered to the District’s year-round Special Waste Convenience Center. Collection events are held only at city service departments. The District's facility is not open to the general public. 

Most communities will only accept and manage waste from their own residents. Find details for your community.

Latex paint is not accepted in this program. Latex paint should be dried up using cat litter and placed in the trash.
