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

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.

Get Charged Up for National Battery Day on February 18th!

As consumers, batteries power our daily lives and allow for many conveniences. With this in mind, it’s important to remember that when the power is lost, don’t toss! This means responsibly recycling batteries once they reach their end-of-life. Recycling batteries keeps them out of landfills and helps protect the planet. The best part – it’s easy! You can go green by:

  • Recycling old consumer batteries at a drop-off location near you. Note that free single-use battery recycling is limited to certain areas.
  • Managing your own recycling program for both rechargeable and single-use batteries. Explore the call2recycle store to restock or buy new supplies.
  • Keeping safety top-of-mind by reviewing quick tips on how to safely prepare your batteries for recycling.
  • Scheduling to have your batteries picked up using the City of Folsom's residential door-to-door household hazardous waste collection.
