Rules & Regulations

Drop-off services are FREE for households only (40 pounds or less limit). A hazardous waste pick-up service also is available on a call-in basis. Please call 428-1742 or 343-6262 for further information.

Ammunition/explosives, asbestos, smoke alarms, and pharmaceuticals/meds are NOT accepted at these facilities.

Drop-off

SWS has two household hazardous waste facilities. SWS household hazardous waste facilities accept hazardous wastes from households and businesses. 

Businesses must qualify as Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators or CESQGs. CESQGs are companies that generate less than 220 pounds of any hazardous wastes per month. 

Disposal rates for CESQGs vary by product and quantity. Typical CESQG rates range from $0.50 to $1.00 per pound. 

Drop off hazardous household materials including:

Antifreeze

Art and Hobby Supplies

Batteries (auto)

Batteries (non-auto):

up to 40lbs daily (max 220lbs per month)

 

Cleaners:

up to 5 gallons or up to 40lbs

Corrosives

Used oil

Up to five gallons will be accepted at all SWS facilities in a separate collection area. These areas are open during the same hours as the facilities where they are located. The used motor oil is later refined; some of it goes for use in ship engines, or back into usable oil for autos. An additional five gallons will be accepted at CTS for an additional charge of $1.00 per gallon.

While you’re at the ARL or CTS facilities, be sure to visit the Paint & Materials Exchange. When the public drops off hazardous materials, SWS checks them and put the usable products in the Haz Bin. 

For example, SWS takes in 50 to 100 gallons of paint each week. Sometimes good paint comes in unopened. You might also be able to pick up some household cleaning solvents, auto fluids, or lawn and garden chemicals, depending on availability.
