Alternative Toxic Waste Disposal Sites for Paint, Oil, and More

Hi folks,

First off, we want to thank YOU for doing your part to keep our community clean! In 2019, we received over 82,000 toxic items at our household hazardous waste facilities across the county. In this first half of 2020, people have continued to be diligent about properly disposing of their toxic waste, even through this global pandemic. Many of our facilities have remained open as they are considered an essential service and, in turn, we have seen a huge rise in drop-offs at all of our locations. 

In this blog, we wanted to provide you with additional, local options for places to safely and responsibly dispose of your toxic waste items. Please contact alternate disposal sites for guidelines, hours of operation, and to confirm the location has the capacity to accept your waste.

FOR ELECTRONIC WASTE:

**Contact your waste hauler and ask about bulky item pick ups for large electronic waste.

FOR FLUORESCENT LIGHTS:

Thanks for doing your part! We’re proud to be in community with all of you and will continue to do our part to provide you with the resources you need to keep our County clean. 

Your friendly neighbor,

Spot the Stormwater Mascot
