Household Hazardous Waste Items

Hazardous wastes are items found in our homes, garages and outdoor sheds that are dangerous to our environment and cannot be disposed of in our everyday trash. For example, pesticides and solvents are dangerous substances that when inhaled or consumed can be life threatening. That is why the HCIA runs its semi-annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program to help residents rid their homes of these materials.

Latex Paint no longer contains dangerous chemicals and is not classified as “hazardous”. Beginning in 2010, we will not accept latex paint at our collections. Latex paint can be dried in the container and thrown out in the regular trash. Please leave the covers off for disposal. For more information, please call our Environmental Hotline.

Alkaline Batteries are no longer accepted. Please dispose of them in your regular garbage. Rechargeable batteries should be brought to the collection sites.

Items you can bring:

  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides
