HHW Details
What It Is And How We Take Care Of It

Chemical products in your home are deemed Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) once they are no longer in use or have passed their expiration date. The potential for their ignitability and toxicity make them hazardous to us and those around us. HHW is not regulated by the Utah Department of Environmental Quality or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is why the Washington County Solid Waste District has taken a proactive approach in seeing that the residents of Washington County have a method to properly dispose of their hazardous materials. We offer our residents Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days throughout the year for your convenience. Thanks for using this service.

HHW Days 2024

Our HHW days for 2024 are April 13th and October 19th, from 8:00 AM – 12:45 PM.
HHW day takes place at the Washington County Landfill. 330 N Landfill Rd in Washington. There will be signs and employees directing you on where to go.

Types of Material Accepted

Only on Hazardous Waste days do we accept the following: aerosol cans, car batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, fuel, herbicides, medical waste, paint, paint thinners, pesticides, propane, and paint supplies.

Cost to Dispose of HHW

This service is free for Washington County residents bringing materials from their homes. However, there is a charge for tires. Contact us for more information on the charges or any other questions you might have.


We do not accept hazardous waste from commercial entities/businesses. Veolia Environmental Services is based in SLC, UT and regularly comes to our area for pickup. Please contact them about any of your hazardous waste disposal needs at 801-294-7111.
