Household Hazardous Waste

This item should never be put in a curbside bin. For more information visit our household hazardous waste page.

Do not mix old fuel with any other solutions. Even water can be dangerous. Mark your gas can with your name and number when you drop off at the HHW Facilities, and they will let you know when you can return to pick it up.
