Your Household Hazardous Waste Collection Team in Action!
The City of Folsom has a full range of household hazardous waste (HHW) and non-residential Universal Waste programs designed to make it easy for you to properly dispose of the hazardous products around your home. We hope that our website will make it easier to safely dispose of hazardous materials you use everyday. You can learn about how our service works and even schedule service through these Web pages. Feel free to e-mail or call us with your comments about our web information.
Congratulations!!! Folsom residents properly disposed of 444,702 pounds of hazardous waste in FY 13-14.
Our service recycles most types of HHW (such as motor oil, paint, stains, poisons, and TV sets).
We even collect the more difficult-to-handle HHW such as pesticides, corrosive cleaners and pool chemicals.
In addition to HHW disposal, your 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.
