Household Hazardous Waste Overview

Background

Household hazardous waste (HHW) collection reduces risk in our waste system. Keeping chemicals and hazardous materials separate from trash and managing them appropriately, reduces environmental, financial, property, and health risks.  

The HHW program encourages residents to reduce the amount of HHW they produce and bring to one of the county’s collection sites. Community education and engagement, as well as convenient collection opportunities, have been important in this work.
