Household Cleaners

 Household Cleaners 

Many of us have more household cleaners and chemicals than we can use, but what do you do when you want to get rid of these products? The best way is to use them up or give them to someone who can use them. If you can't use them or give them away, take them to the San Joaquin Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to drop off these materials at the San Joaquin County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility for proper disposal.

Many common household cleaning products are hazardous because they contain corrosive, toxic, flammable, or reactive ingredients. If these products are handled or disposed of incorrectly, they can pose a threat to human health, animals and the environment.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!


Household Hazardous Waste Re Use Room

Re Use Room Image If the products or items dropped off at the HHW are: 1) useable, 2) not a banned product and 3) are full enough to make it worthwhile, our hazardous materials specialists will place them in the HHW Re-Use Room.  This allows other county residents who can use these products can take them home FREE of charge. Why waste a perfectly good product by placing it in the trash when someone out there can re-use it?  You can feel good about helping the environment and helping people save a few bucks.

 You must be an adult and sign a liability waiver in order to participate in this program. Items taken are for personal use and cannot be sold.


The Rules for the Re Use Room are:

  • You must be 18 or older to take item(s);
  • You can only take items from the room once per week;
  • There is a limit of 5 paint items per vehicle per week;
  • There is a limit of 10 total items per vehicle per week;
  • The liability waiver must be completed before leaving the Re Use Room.
