Think Before You Throw

Household Hazardous Waste

Eastern Waste Management offers free household hazardous waste collection events for residents across the Eastern Region each June.  Household hazardous waste includes leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients.  Any such products you may have in your home including paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, antifreeze, and pesticides require special care when disposed.  So please, think before you throw!  Participate in our household hazardous waste collection events each year and do your part to protect our health and environment. 

Materials from contractors and business will not be accepted at household hazardous waste collection events.
