What Counts as HHW?

Did you know that household hazardous waste (HHW) can pose serious threats to both human health and the environment if not disposed of properly? It’s crucial to ensure the safe disposal of these items to protect our community.

You might be surprised at the everyday items in your home that are considered hazardous waste! From motor oil and batteries to pesticides and paint products, proper disposal is key.

In San Bernardino County, our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facilities, managed by the San Bernardino County Fire Department, ensure safe disposal of these items.

Visit or call 1.800.OILY.CAT (645.9228) to find a drop off location near you.

Let’s all do our part to keep our community safe and healthy! ♻️🌎
