Household hazardous waste is considered leftover household products that can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances, or that are corrosive or toxic as household hazardous waste. These products may be labeled with “caution, toxic, danger, hazard, warning, poisonous, reactive, corrosive, or flammable”. Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care when you dispose of them. These products are accepted at SWAC’s household hazardous waste events. Please see the home page for dates and locations. Any SWAC resident can attend any of the collection events. Residents are not charged at the events. Each town contributes to the cost of the hazardous waste collections. Permits can also be purchased at the RCSWD Transfer Station for year-round drop-off hazardous waste.
