Safe Waste Disposal

Learn how to properly dispose of and manage hazardous and potentially toxic waste you may have at home. 

Overview

Household Hazardous Waste

The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program provided by San Mateo County helps residents dispose/recycle their residential hazardous waste properly – for FREE!  County residents may drop off a full range of HHW at our collection facilities and events year-round every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (except major holiday weekends).

All waste collected is either reused, recycled, processed for energy recovery, or stabilized for proper disposal to achieve zero waste being landfilled.
