Proper HHW Management Protects
Public Health and the Environment

Many common products are hazardous because they contain chemicals that are toxic, corrosive, flammable or reactive. 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.

HHWSTL is pleased to announce the opening of a second site in the regional HHW partnership.  Residents can now make a reservation to drop-off materials at the North County HHW Facility located at 4100 Seven Hills Drive, St. Louis MO, 63033.  This facility was constructed on the grounds of the former Saint Louis County Department of Public Health North County Animal Shelter and offers the same services as the Lemay HHW Facility.

The sites will not be open at the same time.  When making your reservation, you will be asked to select either the North County or the Lemay facility.  The system will then give and available times for an appointment at that site.
