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.
Schedule an appointment online, from our mobile app, or by calling us at 916-461-6730.
After you receive your appointment, verify that your household hazardous waste is acceptable and prepare it for pick up.
Place your HHW out for pickup according to the picture below. Put it at the bottom of your driveway, not by your house, not on the sidewalk, not on the parkway, and not in the street.
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.
