For program details please view the Household Hazardous Waste/E-Waste Information Flyer.
Did you know that each person in the United States produces an average of 4 pounds of household hazardous waste each year for a total of about 530,000 tons per year in the USA? The average U.S. household produces more than 20 pounds of household hazardous waste per year. As much as 100 pounds can accumulate in the home, often remaining there until the residents move out or conduct an extensive cleanout.
Always try to use up the entire hazardous product and opt for safe alternatives in the future!
