How to Use the HHW Facility

This is a drive-up facility. When it's your turn, you will be asked to drive under a covered area. Customers are responsible for unloading their own vehicles. Facility personnel may assist, but cannot enter vehicles. This facility can accommodate persons with mobility limitations.

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 or organization.


Safe Transport Tips

Keep yourself, your family, and our staff safe by following these guidelines for packing and transporting hazardous products:

  • Put containers in a sturdy, lined box and prevent containers and boxes from tipping or leaking.

  • Put boxes in your trunk or truck bed, not the passenger area.

  • Use straps and tarps to secure boxes in truck beds.

  • Use original product containers. If you used a different container, label it.

  • Never mix different types of products.

  • Don't tape fluorescent tubes or bulbs and don't let them get wet.


Product Reuse Program

In order to be good stewards of what enters the waste stream, our staff identifies products that are still usable to others and offers them to residents for their use. Residents may take these items for use at no charge. Customers can view reclaimed products such as paints and sealers that have been brought into the facility.  Only one customer is allowed to view what is available at a time.
