Free Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Disposal Sites

Free Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Disposal Sites

Household hazardous waste (HHW) products include pesticides, paints, solvents, batteries, thinners, motor oil, and antifreeze. Look for signal words such as poison, danger, warning, caution, or flammable on the label.

To dispose of your HHW product:

Keep HHW products separate (do not mix).
Bring products in their original containers when possible.
Seal products to prevent leaks and spills.
Keep products away from the driver and passengers, i.e., in a trunk, truck bed, or trailer.
Keep children and pets away from collection sites and events.

Exceed 25 gallons or 220 pounds of HHW per event/visit to disposal site.
Bring unlabeled, empty or leaking containers, asbestos, explosives or ammunition, radioactive or infectious waste, or business-generated waste to the collection site.

Disposal Sites:
Residents of Clark County and its cities may dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste products at one of the following county sponsored HHW collection sites (listed below) or at a Satellite Collection Event.  In addition, a Home Collection Program is available for eligible seniors and citizens with disabilities who are unable to transport HHW to a collection site or event.
