​How to Use the Facility

This is a drive-up facility. When it's your turn, you will be asked to drive under a covered area.

Staff will sort your waste with your assistance. They may ask you questions or provide education.

Before you leave, you will sign an agreement verifying that your waste is from a home and not from a business.

​ Safe Transport Tips

  • Use original containers. Keep hazardous products in their original containers. Containers have important safety and disposal information. If you have used a different container, label it with the type of product.
  • Transport products in your trunk or truck bed, not in the passenger cabin. A car accident may cause your hazardous materials to mix together, so you should always keep them in your trunk or truck bed and away from areas where people or pets go.
  • Secure your load and prevent tipping. Place containers in a plastic bin or sturdy lined box with a lid. Pack the space in between containers with newspaper to prevent the containers from tipping or leaking. If transporting waste in a truck, secure the load with ties to prevent the load from shifting.
  • Never mix products. Do not mix different types of products in the same containers.
  • Don't tape bulbs or let them get wet. Do not tape fluorescent tubes or bulbs together or let them get wet. When possible, transport them in the original box to prevent breakage.
