What happens to the HHW after I drop it off?

Household Hazardous Waste items do NOT end up in a landfill. 99% of the material accepted by Hazman is recycled or reused.

Hazman safely handles HHW through a specific process.

1. The material is identified and accepted at the Hazman Drop-Off Center.

2. Our chemist sorts and segregates material based on chemical and physical characteristics.

3. The material is consolidated into drums, pails, or cubic yard boxes for shipping.

4. Various facilities receive the containers to begin treatment and recycling. 

Does Hazman accept prescription drugs and/or Sharps/needles?

Hazman does not accept prescription drugs or needles.
