Do you have chemicals, adhesives or solvents that you
want to get rid of?
Most households have miscellaneous solvents, adhesives and
other chemicals that were used only once or twice and are now just gathering
dust. How can you dispose of these materials responsibly? If
they are still useable, the best
way to get rid of them is to use them up or give them to someone who can.
If you cannot use them or give them away, take them to the San Joaquin Household Hazardous Waste Facility (HHW) facility.
There is NO COST for San
Joaquin County residents to drop off these materials at the
HHW Facility for proper
Many common household products are hazardous because they
contain flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive ingredients. If these
products are handled or disposed of incorrectly, they can pose a threat to
human health, animals and the environment.
HHW ReUse Room
If the products or items dropped off at the HHW are:
1) useable, 2) not a banned product and 3) are full enough to make it
worthwhile, our hazardous
materials specialists will place them
in the HHW Re-Use Room, where other county residents who can use these
products can take them home FREE of charge. Why waste a
perfectly good product by disposing of it when someone out there can
re-use it? You can feel good about helping the environment and helping
people save a few bucks.
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!
