Household Hazardous Waste Collection sites will continue to operate during posted hours until further notice. When you load materials in your vehicle, please load them in your trunk and not in the passenger compartment.

COVID-19 information and resources


Many household products you use to clean your kitchen and bathroom, maintain your car and home, and control animals and insects contain hazardous materials. If a container has the words caution, warning, danger or poison on the label and still has product inside, it does not belong in the trash. Use Ramsey County's free household hazardous waste collection sites for safe disposal.

Notice: Gas cans and other fuel containers will not be returned at mobile collection sites. Pick them up later at our year-round collection site in Saint Paul or use that site directly when dropping off gasoline.
