List of Items:

Nearly everyone uses household chemicals to paint, clean, and maintain our homes and yards. But many of these products can be toxic if used or disposed of improperly. Leftover 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 schedule an appointment to have their HHW picked up by calling 916-461-6730 or by emailing solidwaste@folsom.ca.us.

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.

Learn how to identify household hazardous waste in your home.

Visit our non-residential hazardous materials web page for information on the proper disposal of Universal Wastes from your business, church, or school.
