Household Hazardous Waste Events

Collections Closer to Home


Washington County will sponsor special one-day household hazardous waste collections during the summer and fall in communities throughout the county. 
Confidential document shredding will be available at all events on a limited availability - six boxes per household. 

Bring your personal and confidential papers to be shredded on-site by Shred Right. Staples and paper clips do not have to be removed. CDs, floppy disks and other media will also be accepted for off-site destruction. The event is free and open to residents and businesses. Bring up to 6 boxes for shredding, weighing no more than 30 pounds each.
