Safe Disposal and Recycling

Hazardous Wastes (HW) are leftover, unwanted, unusable or spent products that contain toxic ingredients. These products must be disposed of properly to protect the health of our families and the environment.

Additional drop-off locations exist for highlighted items – click on the link for that information. Bring chemicals in secure containers and do not mix them! Do not bring explosives, radioactive material, drums, medical Waste and unstable chemicals.

If your business has leftover hazardous materials, you may be eligible for a service to safetly dispose of these items. Businesses that generate less than 25 gallons or 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month can participate in the Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) program for a fee. Businesses must make an appointment first.
