Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) are materials that require separate disposal to prevent harm to you and the environment. These corrosive, flammable, or toxic materials can accumulate in your garage or yard and endanger you, your family, and the environment. HHW includes items such as batteries, paint, household cleaners, and propane tanks.

Never pour leftover hazardous materials down the sink, toilet, or storm drain, or put them in the garbage or recycling. You can properly dispose of all HHW for FREE by making a drop-off appointment with the Santa Clara County HHW Program or visiting a take-back location. Here is a list of items taken by the HHW program.
