San Benito Household Hazardous Waste

Published Jun 2016


Out of concern for the environment, California requires that all hazardous materials, such as pesticides, paints and batteries, be kept out of landfills. But what is a resident supposed to do with all that stuff? The answer is Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). San Benito County residents can bring their HHW to the disposal facility or visit any number of retail disposal locations. Lack of knowledge of how and where to dispose of certain items is leading to materials going into the landfill, where they could pose environmental problems. Many times, HHW involves reusing the material, closing the loop in the recycling process. Gain a better understanding of how and why they should dispose of their HHW properly.
