Household Hazardous Waste

Not all household products can be thrown in the regular garbage. Ask Republic Services to identify safe, convenient disposal options for household hazardous materials to prevent potential harm to the environment, our employees or others.

Service Performance That Evolves with You
Being informed can help you make smarter, safer disposal decisions. You will likely find at least one thing you thought was safe to toss, but is on the list of common household hazardous waste materials. These items should not be mixed with your regular garbage or recyclables. Household hazardous wastes require special handling.

Household hazardous waste consists of materials that pose potential threats to people and the environment, such as:
  • Pesticides
  • Insect sprays
  • Herbicides
  • Rust removers
  • Swimming pool chemicals
  • Wood preservatives
  • Chlorine Bleach
  • Drain openers
  • Corrosive chemicals (non-commercial)
  • Lye
  • Muriatic acid
  • Hobby chemicals
  • Lubricants
  • Used motor oil
  • Used transmission fluid
  • Gear oil
  • Paint products including oil, latex, spray and stripper
  • Paint thinners
  • Automotive chemicals including waxes, polish, carburetor cleaner, brake fluid, gasoline and antifreeze
  • Batteries

Republic Services cannot collect household hazardous waste as part of your regular garbage or recycling collection, but we are committed to providing convenient and affordable household hazardous waste drop off locations and participate in community collection events nationwide to ensure responsible disposal of hazardous materials.

If you have any of these items or questionable materials you suspect may be hazardous, contact us for local service details, or to find the nearest hazardous waste disposal site to safely process these materials.
