Several times a year the County Complex  on Route 12 holds a Household Hazardous Waste Clean Up event.

No pre-registration required and all county residents are welcome.

Leftover household products may contain corrosive, ignitable, reactive, or toxic ingredients and are considered to be household hazardous waste. Improper disposal of these wastes (pouring down drain, storm sewers or in some    cases putting them out with the trash) are unlawful and will  pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health.

NO COMPUTERS OR MONITORS WILL BE ACCEPTED: See information about our Special Electronics Cleanup Day Program

NEW GUIDELINES DUE TO COVID-19 FOR THE COLLECTION OF HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

  1. Please limit one person per household entering the HHW program location.
  2. Face Coverings are required for the driver.
  3. Please place items in the rear of the vehicle.
  4. There will be no pour offs of containers. The way the waste is packaged is the way the waste will be unloaded. This limits the amount of time an unloader can be subjected to the driver. If gas cans are brought in the can will not be given back empty to the driver.
