Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

​The Salt Lake County Health Department hosts summertime events for Household Hazardous Waste disposal. 2019 dates to be announced.

  • Household hazardous waste (HHW) is anything in or around your home that is poisonous, flammable, corrosive, or toxic, as well as products (such as electronics) that contain certain materials like metals.

    This includes:

    • Fuels
    • Paint
    • Pesticides
    • Yard care chemicals
    • Many cleaning supplies
    • Batteries
    • Cooking oil
    • Automotive fluids and products
    • Aerosols
    • Fluorescent light bulbs
    • Devices that contain mercury
    • Televisions/monitors
    • Computers and peripherals
    • Cell phones

It is dangerous to dispose of these items in your garbage can or down sewers, and it is illegal to abandon them or pour them in gutters, storm drains, or waterways . Storing or disposing of these items improperly poisons our land, air, and water and may result in both civil and criminal penalties.

Please note that Salt Lake County HHW facilities cannot accept radioactive materials or explosives (such as ammunition and fireworks). Contact your local fire department to dispose of such items.
