Presenting: A Trashy Love Story
We recycle for you, yet we need your support keeping Household Hazardous Waste (HHWs) out of your One Big Bin. Watch the video, and then scroll down to learn how to properly dispose of HHWs.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
Due to COVID-19, some services and programs have been affected. Click here for latest updates.
State law prohibits many common household items like paint, batteries, electronics, sharps and medications from being placed in your bin. Keeping these items out of your bin helps protect the environment and the people collecting and sorting your waste, and allows our sorters to focus on recovering more recyclables. These items can still be easily disposed or recycled – find an option that works for you!
