Household Hazardous Waste Drop off Events
The Niagara County Department of Public Works, along with NYSDEC, will host two drop off events in 2017. For your protection and ours, all HHW drop-offs are by APPOINTMENT ONLY. The next scheduled event will take place at the North Tonawanda Department of Public Works Garage on Saturday October 21. Registration will start on September 25.

Eligibility and Exclusions:

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 Department of Public Works 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.
