Hazardous Waste Clean up Days

Hazardous Waste Clean Up Day

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

No pre-registration is 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 drains, 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.

To find out what is hazardous waste view the Hazardous Wastes page.  Some of these items may not be accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste Events.  Please view the flyer for acceptable items.

Guidelines For The Collection of Household Hazardous Waste

  • Please place items in the rear of the vehicle.
  • 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 it takes to unload vehicles. If gas cans are brought in, the can will not be returned empty to the driver.
  • Water based paints are not accepted. (Latex and acrylic type)
