Program Description

  Household & Small Quantity Hazardous Waste Management

This program funds a contractor to receive, sort, pack, ship, and properly dispose of household hazardous waste such as flammable products, insecticides, mercury, and reactive and corrosive chemicals. These products are brought in by residents and processed at State and Federally-approved hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities. This program includes outreach to educate residents regarding the potential dangers of certain household products and to reduce generation of hazardous waste; it also helps businesses that qualify as small-quantity generators of hazardous waste by providing them with an economical and environmentally safe disposal option. The materials are handled through the County's hazardous waste contractor and permitted hazardous waste management facilities.
