Household Hazardous Waste Materials

Those pesticides you have in your utility room? The box of old batteries you’re sure aren’t quite dead yet? Those are all hazardous waste or at least waste that must be disposed some other way than tossing it into the trash.

The list of materials that fit into this category is quite long, but there are several general classifications for your household hazardous waste (HHW) materials. This section provides more information on these materials and how they can be properly disposed.

Safe Transport of HHW

In order to safely transport household hazardous waste to the collection center, please follow these guidelines:

1. Make certain that the amount of waste transported does not exceed 5 gallons per container and a total of 15 gallons or 125 pounds per trip.

2. Check that the waste containers are not leaking and are properly sealed.

3. Keep the waste in its original container if possible; otherwise, label it clearly as to contents.

4. Place the wastes securely in the vehicle for safe transport to the collection center.
