3 Reasons to Participate in Household Hazardous Waste Day

Get Rid of Needless Waste at Home

Clean out your garage, cabinets and closets from old waste, such as paint cans and waste oil.

Recycle Responsibly

We partner with hazardous waste professionals to ensure that waste is properly disposed of and recycled.

Protect the Environment

Proper disposal and recycling of hazardous waste protects the environment and extends the life of landfills.

Get Rid of Your Hazardous Waste the Right Way

Warren County's Division of Stormwater Management partners with multiple agencies and businesses to host Household Hazardous Waste days, providing you and your family with the most environmentally friendly way to dispose of the hazardous waste around your home.

What is Household Hazardous Waste?

Many household items are hazardous to the environment when improperly disposed of. You can generally find these items stored in your garage or under your kitchen sink - paint, anti-freeze, oil, cooking oil and more (see the list below for more).

Why is it Important to Dispose of Hazardous Waste Properly?

Many of these items are harmful when improperly disposed of in our landfills. This reduces the useful lifetime of the landfill.

Improperly disposing of these waste items also prevents their proper recycling - one of the other functions of Household Hazardous Waste Day.

By participating in Household Hazardous Waste Day, you and your family may get rid of those extra household items cluttering up your garage, cabinets and closets and protect the environment at the same time.

E-Scrap Recycling

"e-Waste" includes small electronics, such as TVs 40 inches and under, computer CPUs, laptops, tablets and monitors.

You can bring old small electronics to Household Hazardous Waste Day, and we will ensure they are properly recycled.

Document Shredding

Do you have personal documents that need to be shredded?

We will have on-site document shredding available for you. Note: any previously shredded material you wish to recycle must be sealed in a bag to prevent escape.
