What is HHW?

HHW are materials commonly found in our basements, garages and sheds that we use in our daily lives. If they were generated by industry, they would be treated as Hazardous wastes.  It is important to safely manage these materials due to the harm they pose in your home, to our environment and to those managing our refuse. The Niagara County Refuse Disposal District and NYSDEC provide drop-off events for Niagara County residents to responsibly dispose of these materials.

Common household hazardous wastes that are acceptable for drop off include: Latex Paint 3/4 can or more, Oil based Paint, Wood Stains and Preservatives, Automotive Fluids (antifreeze, brake, power steering and transmission fluids), Pesticides and Fertilizers, Flammable Products (gasoline, kerosene, thinners, strippers, solvents, glues, etc.), Household Cleaners (soaps, waxes, drain cleaners, etc.), Driveway Sealer, Pool and Photo Chemicals, Mercury (thermometers, thermostats), Fluorescent Bulbs.
