Household Hazardous Waste Processing

Our partnership with Salt Lake County Health Department (SLCoHD) allows us to provide a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) drop off for residential and small businesses. Residential drop off is free of charge. This program is beneficial by keeping used chemicals and paint out of the waste stream and provides residents re-usable product free of charge.

Our employees segregate chemicals into appropriate categories, bulk paint for use in anti-graffiti programs, place usable items in our re-use shed for residential use, and safely process the rest of the HHW material for diversion to an appropriate disposal facility.
