Hazardous household waste is free of charge for residential customers. It is accepted at the South Facility at 909 Westover Road Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Accepted items include:
Pesticides and herbicides
Oil based paint, no latex paint*
Engine oil and car batteries are accepted but must be taken directly to the Recycling Center
*To dispose of latex paint, open the cans and allow the paint to dry completely. It can then be thrown into your garbage dumpster at home or brought to the landfill and disposed of with your household garbage. To speed up the drying process, waste paint hardener can be purchased at your local hardware store. Mixing kitty litter or ashes into the paint will hasten the drying time as well.
