Household Hazardous Waste

Household hazardous waste (HHW) includes any leftover household product that is marked flammable, corrosive, explosive or poison, such as paints, varnishes, pesticides, and cleaners. HHW is dangerous to people, pets and the environment, and if placed in the garbage, can create environmental and public health hazards.

You can dispose of your household hazardous waste at the Hartland Landfill's recycling area free of charge. To learn more, please see CRD's Waste Management section.
