What Is Hazardous Waste?

Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste includes any unused product that is poisonous, reactive, corrosive, or flammable. You can easily identify hazardous products by reading packaging labels. Look for key words such as "Warning!" "Danger!" "Poison!" "Caution!" Such products include certain paints, cleaners, stains and varnishes, car batteries, motor oil, and pesticides. Click here for a detailed list of what we accept as Hazardous Waste.

Household Hazardous Waste is FREE to dispose of by any RCSWD residential permit holders by APPOINTMENT ONLY!

Some materials are free to all, as they are covered by Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) laws.

There are two options for disposing of hazardous waste produced in-home:

  1. Drop it off at our Regional Transfer Station HHW Depot on Gleason Road in Rutland. Now open by appointment only. Purchasing a permit is required to dispose of hazardous waste at the Gleason Road Transfer station
  2. Take it to one of the Rural HHW collection events at your local transfer station throughout the year.
