Can you drop off paint?
The Household Hazardous Waste Action Coalition is currently trying to secure funding for the collection of paint. Once we know if we have the resources to collect paint, we’ll be sure to let you know!
What is not accepted at the event?
We will NOT be accepting appliances, fertilizer, mercury containing devices, medications or tires. We also have the right to reject any item that you bring. Visit the “Resource Guide” on this website for proper disposal methods of these items.
Is there a cost for dropping off your hazardous items?
The event is FREE to the community
How do I drop off my items?
You load your car, drive to the event and we’ll do the rest! We do our best to keep traffic flowing so we ask that all attendees remain in their vehicles. We have volunteers who will unload your car for you and sort the items appropriately.
Please note - this event attracts a lot of people! While we work as fast as we can to get people through the line, please anticipate a wait. Thanks in advance for your patience and we appreciate you taking the time to properly dispose of hazardous waste.
Do I need to bring anything other than my items?
To speed up the process, we ask that event attendees bring a completed copy of our registration form. Knowing what you have with you allows us to direct traffic and efficiently sort the items you are bringing. The form will be loaded to this website once we know whether or not we will be collecting paint.
