Household hazardous waste (HHW) is the unwanted or unusable portion of consumer products that contain substances that can harm people or the environment. Unlike industrial hazardous wastes, household hazardous wastes are not regulated. Most households can identify at least a few products as hazardous. Household cleaners, paint, pesticides, batteries and prescription medicines are just a few. They have made our lives easier but they can also be toxic to our health and our environment when we use them and when we throw them away.
All HHW collected is handled by a household hazardous waste vendor in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations. Depending on the material type, some items are recycled, some are used as energy recovery (blended and used as fuel) and some are disposed of in a hazardous waste landfill.
A $10 charge will be collected at events in exact cash or check written to Oakland County NO HAZ.
