We Want Your Household Hazardous Waste

chemicals

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).

“Many homeowners don’t understand the real dangers associated with the chemicals they keep under their sinks, in their pantries, or in their garages.” Daniel Brooks, household hazardous waste program manager

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.
