Hazardous Household Materials

Paint cans, motor oil, pesticides, batteries, tires and other hazardous household materials are not accepted by Scott Waste Services or most other local service providers for pickup.

As a citizen it is my responsibility to...

Contact a private hazardous materials disposal contractor (listed in the Yellow Pages) or Warren County Environmental Planning & Assistance regarding appropriate methods for proper disposal of these materials.  Some auto parts retailers are drop-off centers for recycled motor oil.  Tire retailers will accept your old tires for disposal at the time of purchase of new tires, usually for a nominal fee.

It is the responsibility of the city to...

Each spring Warren County Environmental Planning & Assistance hosts a Household Hazardous Materials Amnesty Day where such items may be dropped off for recycling at no charge.  They also provide information regarding free, safe and environmentally friendly ways to dispose of such materials in the meantime.

If I am interested, who do I contact...
