Household Hazardous Waste
The Issue
Household hazardous waste materials include things like:
  • Automotive fluids
  • Cleaners
  • Paint
  • Pesticides
  • Propane tanks

These household hazardous wastes can accumulate in your garage or yard shed and can be corrosive, flammable, or toxic and be hazardous to you, your family, and the environment.

What You Can Do
You can properly dispose of all household hazardous waste materials for free at your local household hazardous waste facility. Visit the Santa Clara County Household Hazardous Waste Program or call to schedule a free drop-off appointment. And, remember to never pour leftover materials down the sink, toilet, or storm drain.
