Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Home » Departments » Utilities and Environmental Services » Garbage and Recycling » Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Easily and safely dispose of leftover paint, pesticides, cleaners, and other household hazardous waste (HHW) at the City’s Recycling Center during a regularly scheduled HHW collection event.

Many common household products contain chemicals that could easily ignite or explode if not disposed of properly. These toxic chemicals can have adverse effects on people, animals, plants, and fish; therefore, they require special care when being disposed of.

Events are held at the City’s Recycling Center.

You may also dispose of LATEX PAINT by following these steps:
1. Determine the total square feet (sq ft) of each area:Example:
For each wall, multiply the height by the width:10 ft. x 12 ft. = 120 sq ft (one wall)
For each ceiling, multiply the length by the width:15 ft. x 12 ft. = 180 sq ft (one ceiling)
2. Add up the total sq ft for all walls and ceilings to be painted:120 sq ft + 180 sq ft = 300 total sq ft
3. Determine gallons needed for one coat (divide total sq ft by 400):300 sq ft / 400 = .75 gallons
