The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program is hosting a drop-off event in Daly City on Saturday, December 11, 2021, 8:30am-12:15pm. Accepted items include cleaning products; fertilizers and garden chemicals; pesticides, herbicides and rodenticides; solvents; flammable liquids; fluorescent lights (compact and tubes), paint thinner, acids/bases, aerosol cans, automotive supplies (car batteries, motor oil, oil filters, antifreeze, brake fluid), inks, and photo chemicals. All waste collected is reused, recycled, or stabilized for proper disposal to achieve zero waste and prevent any items from going to the landfill and contaminating our water and soil. No radioactive, explosive, or medical waste.
To participate, you must schedule an appointment at San Mateo County’s HHW Program: smchealth.org/hhw, or by calling (650) 372-6200. The event location will be disclosed once your appointment is confirmed. Limit 10 gallons or 50 pounds per appointment (per car load). If you have greater than 10 gallons you must schedule two appointments and make two vehicle trips. No commercial waste is allowed.
Residents unable to attend this event can still dispose of household hazardous waste for free at San Mateo County’s permanent HHW facility Thursdays-Saturdays (except major holiday weekends). You must make an appointment at smchealth.org/hhw or call (650) 372-6200. Recycling/safe disposal of Paint, fluorescent lights, household batteries, and used motor oil/filter does not need an appointment. Go to smchealth.org/hhw for local drop-off sites.
