Household Hazardous Waste
CHECK THE VEHICLE LINE BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
On the event day, please read and follow the road signs carefully. Two vehicle lanes will be in place to ensure the safety of staff. The right vehicle lane will be dedicated to household hazardous waste. The left lane will be dedicated to electronics and paper shred.
First enter the right vehicle lane for HHW to ensure your drop off time. If you also brought electronics and/or paper shred, follow the road signs to re-enter the other vehicle lane after you have dropped off your HHW.
