Daily household hazardous waste disposal services at our two collections sites have been expanded, offering you a convenient way to remove dangerous, unused chemicals from your homes (it also helps keep harmful substances from entering the environment, such as cleaning products, inks and dyes, paint, products containing mercury, and other potentially harmful chemicals).
If you want to rid your home of household hazardous waste, then bring corrosive, ignitable, toxic, and reactive materials to permanent collection facilities located at the I-66 transfer station in Fairfax and the I-95 landfill complex in Lorton, any day of the week. There is no fee. From 2012 through 2015, we conducted four remote disposal events per year, but those events have been discontinued for 2016.
Here are lists of what household hazardous waste you can dispose of, what you can pour down the drain, what you can throw away and what is not accepted:
I-66 Transfer Station
- Monday – Saturday: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
- Sunday: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
I-95 Landfill Complex
- Daily: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
The expanded permanent program for homes is a more cost-effective way to capture and properly dispose of hazardous waste. As a result of cost savings, we have now doubled the number of business hazardous waste collection events from three to six in 2016.
