HHW Transportation Tips

 

 Flat Bed TruckResidents may transport no more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of Household Hazardous Waste per any one trip* to San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility. 

It is important to remember that proper handling and transportation of hazardous waste can reduce the chance of accidental spills.

For your safety and the safety of the Hazardous Waste Specialists, please:

 
  • Never mix products.
  • Keep products in original containers - containers containing gasoline or other fuels are not returned to customers
  • Label products not in original containers.
  • Secure products so they won't tip over, spill and/or leak.
  • Secure the entire load in your vehicle's trunk area, truck bed or trailer.
  • Store products away from the passenger compartment of your vehicle.

If you have any questions about how to handle or transport materials or if you have larger quantities of HHW to dispose of or special needs call (800) 207-8222 to speak to a Hazardous Waste Specialist. These specialists are available to provide further information and to set up an appointment for your delivery to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility if necessary. This service is FREE for San Joaquin County residents.

* the only exception to this rule is used oil. Households may legally transport up to 55 gallons of used oil per trip to an authorized used oil collection center. Click here for ore details on transporting used oil.  

NO explosives, radioactive materials, medical waste, sewage, solar panels, controlled substances, refrigerating units, gas powered tools, air conditioning units, tires, large appliances, and large compressed gas cylinders are accepted at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility.
