Solvents, Glues and Chemicals

 Solvents, Glues & Chemicals

Do you have chemicals, adhesives or solvents that you want to get rid of? 
Most households have miscellaneous solvents, adhesives and other chemicals that were used only once or twice and are now just gathering dust. How can you dispose of these materials responsibly? If they are still useable, the best way to get rid of them is to use them up or give them to someone who can. If you cannot use them or give them away, take them to the San Joaquin Household Hazardous Waste Facility (HHW) facility.

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

HHW Re-Use Room
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, where other county residents who can use these products can take them home FREE of charge. Why waste a perfectly good product by disposing of it when someone out there can re-use it? You can feel good about helping the environment and helping people save a few bucks.

There is NO COST for San Joaquin County residents to drop off these materials at the HHW Facility for proper disposal.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE THESE ITEMS IN THE GARBAGE!
