Packing and Transportation

Please follow these guidelines when preparing to drop off Household Hazardous Waste at the facility:

How to Transport your Household Hazardous Waste
  • Materials must be packaged in sturdy, non-leaking containers no larger than 5 gallons.
  • Make sure products are properly sealed in their original containers.
  • If a product does not have its original label, label it if only you are sure of the contents.
  • Do Not mix products.
  • Small, leaking containers can be individually placed in resealable plastic bags. Larger containers should be placed in separate, covered, and non-leaking containers for transport.
  • Containers can be placed into boxes lined with plastic garbage bags.
  • Five gallon plastic buckets are available at most hardware stores and make good transporting containers.

How to Transport

Place the materials upright in your vehicle and brace them so they will not slip or tip over. For safety, transport the materials in your vehicle's trunk or truck bed, away from the passenger compartment.

NOTE:  State regulations limit the transportation of household hazardous waste to 15 gallons of liquid or 125 pounds of solid material per vehicle per visit. Individual containers are limited to a 5-gallon capacity. There are no limitations on the number of visits per day to drop off hazardous waste.
