All Household Chemical Collection events are held on Saturdays, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, rain or shine. Participant fee: $3.00 per gallon, cash only (a few exceptions apply).

Household Chemical Wastes are waste products produced in our homes that are hazardous in nature, but are not regulated as hazardous waste under federal and state laws. They are typically left over products that are no longer usable, leftover, or unwanted. You can identify a product as hazardous by words such as CAUTION, WARNING, POISON, or FLAMMABLE on the label.

Each person in Pennsylvania produces an average of four pounds of chemical waste each year for a total of about 25,000 tons/yr. statewide. If carelessly managed, these consumer waste products can create environmental and public health hazards.

What is Household Chemical Waste

Household Chemical Waste generally falls into six categories:

Cleaning Products: aerosols, bathroom cleaners, drain cleaners, chlorine bleach, solvents, spot removers, toilet cleaners, oven cleaners, rug and floor cleaners, furniture polish.

Auto Maintenance: car waxes, starting fluids, solvent cleaners, antifreeze, repair products, batteries, brake fluid, motor oil, and gasoline.
