Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Hazardous waste materials are just that: hazardous. Not only can they be dangerous for you and your health, they are dangerous to the environment too, and should never go into your community’s regular trash.

Below are some local disposal resources.

  1. Mercury Disposal
  2. Glucose Monitors & Sharps
  3. Microwave Ovens
  4. Prescription Drugs
