Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event

Saturday, April 8, 2017

The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program, provided by San Mateo County, helps residents dispose/recycle their residential hazardous waste properly - for FREE!

What is Household Hazardous Waste?
HHW is a waste, from your home, that is toxic, corrosive, flammable or reactive, based on its chemical properties. Products such as paint thinner, toilet bowl cleaner, and rat bait exhibit these hazardous characteristics. It is illegal to dispose of such dangerous wastes in the regular trash or dump them down the drain, so use the San Mateo County's HHW Program for proper disposal.

As part of this special collection event, you can drop off HHW materials at a location in Menlo Park. The address is provided as part of your appointment confirmation. Appointments are required and space is limited. 

Acceptable items include
  • Acids/bases
  • Aerosol cans
  • Automotive supplies (car batteries, motor oil, antifreeze, break fluids)
  • Cleaning products
  • Fertilizers
  • Pesticides
  • Flammable liquids
  • Fluorescent lights (compact and tubes)
  • Paints
  • Inks
  • Photo chemicals

Radioactive, explosive, medical and commercial waste is prohibited.
