Household Hazardous Waste Pickup

The doorstep Household Hazardous Waste collection is a popular program provided by HHW Solutions. The service is provided as part of a flat fee of $1.13 each month on residential utility bills and offers residents the opportunity to clear out their sheds or garages of hazardous waste items such as paints, batteries, used motor oil, lawn and gardening items, and household cleaners without having to wait for and drive to special events to safely dispose of these items.

Pickup days are the fourth Monday of each month beginning Monday, March 28, 2022.
