Household Hazardous Waste


Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients are considered to be "hazardous waste".  These products contain harmful ingredients that require special care when disposed of to help protect human health and the quality of the environment. Below is a list of the most common household  hazardous materials.

The city organizes household hazardous waste events throughout the year for residents to drop off their hazardous waste and select electronics at no cost to them. We also have a shredding truck on site for residents to shred sensitive documents.

For information on when the next event will be held, please visit the events page.

For items not on the list, contact Yanira Pineda, Senior Sustainability Coordinator at
