City of Folsom Hazardous Materials Division

Welcome to Folsom Hazmat

Congratulations! Folsom residents properly disposed of 414,121 pounds of hazardous waste in the period between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015.

Nearly everyone uses household chemicals to paint, clean, and maintain our homes, gardens and yards. But many of these products can be toxic if they’re used or disposed of improperly. Left over hazardous waste should never be thrown in the trash or recycling bin, flushed down the toilet or dumped down the sink or storm drain.

Our innovative Door 2 Door residential collection service recycles most types of household hazardous waste (HHW) such as motor oil, paint, stains, poisons, medications and electronics.

Folsom residents can easily schedule an appointment online to have their HHW picked up.

Explore our website through the Navigation panel on the left to see the full range of options provided by the City for you to safely dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW).

In addition to HHW disposal, the Hazardous Materials Division provides services to reduce the number of hypodermic needles in the waste stream through our Sharps Program and helps to reduce the discharge of motor oil from boat bilges into Folsom Lake by promoting Clean Boating.
