Curbside Collection of Some Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW)

Some Household Hazardous Wastes are collected at curbside along with recycle materials.

Empty aerosol cans: Remove and discard plastic caps.

Motor oil/antifreeze: must be in a clear one-gallon container with a screw-on top.
Do not mix oil and antifreeze together or with any other material.

Household batteries: should be placed in a clear plastic bag and on top of the cart.
Include flashlight, hearing aid and rechargeable batteries (alkaline, ni-cad and lithium). Do not set out vehicle batteries; they may be taken to a variety of Collection Sites.

For all other HHW visit: HHW - Disposal

Help a neighbor and the environment too.
Heading to the transfer station with recycling or household hazardous waste?   Good job!  That is a great way to help the environment; but it could even be better if you saved someone else a trip. Check with your neighbors (especially  those  who  may be elderly or have a disability) to see if they also have some recycling or household hazardous waste that you could take.  For information about recycling at the County's transfer stations  visit Transfer Station Recycling.
