Sacramento County Household Hazardous Waste

The Usual Suspects

Out of concern for the environment, California requires that all hazardous materials, such as pesticides, paints and batteries, be kept out of landfills. But what is a resident supposed to do with all that stuff? The answer is Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Sacramento County residents can bring their HHW to four locations to dispose of these materials free of charge, or they can seek out any number of community disposal options. Lack of knowledge of how and where to dispose of certain items is leading to materials going into the landfill, where they could pose environmental problems. Many times, HHW involves reusing the material, closing the loop in the recycling process. This publication seeks to give residents a better understanding of how and why they should dispose of their HHW properly.
