Improper disposal (pouring down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash) can harm the environment and a pose a threat to human health.

Do I Have to Make an Appointment?

The short answer is no, however, making an appointment assures we have the appropriate staff ready to help you! The reservation process also explains what is accepted and helps you estimate any fees that may apply.  While appointments are highly encouraged, life happens and you may want to come earlier than expected or on a day that works better for your schedule. We want this to be an accessible resource for our community, so we welcome walk in’s and fluctuating your appointment time! 

 

To better accommodate you and our staff, please be aware of our new hours for each site on each day we are open:

WEDNESDAY (North Facility), THURSDAY (Lemay Facility), FRIDAY, (Lemay Facility) SATURDAY (alternates between the two sites)

 

OPEN: 9:00 AM – 11:45 AM

In order to assure two people are on site to manage the materials safely, closing the facilities between 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. will be strictly observed.  We want to keep harmful materials locked up securely to minimize the risks of them being unattended, so please plan your trip accordingly.  

 

Thank you for properly managing your household hazardous waste!

How to Prepare HHW for Transport

 

  • Pack waste carefully in a box or plastic storage container to prevent spillage during transport
  • Do not mix chemicals! Arrange similar chemicals together when packing your car. Put pesticides together, solvents together, paints together in their own boxes
  •  Make sure chemicals are not leaking and lids are tightly sealed. If they are not sealed, place them in a separate container for transport
  • Keep products in their original container. Label materials that are not in their original container. If you do not know what the substance is, transport it in its own box and let us know it is an unknown substance
  • Place your box of household hazardous waste in the trunk of your car or in the bed of your truck
  • Drive directly to the HHW disposal site carefully and let staffed personnel unload your chemicals once you arrive
