Household Hazardous Waste
Which Items are Considered Hazardous Waste?
It can be a tough job determining which household products can be disposed of in your regular trash and what is considered hazardous. Here is a simplified list of Household Hazardous Waste:
Poisons: Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, & other poisons.
Heavy Metals: Mercury and products containing elemental mercury.
Corrosives: Acids, bases, and reactives
The Lincoln County Solid Waste District and Lincoln County Haulers together put on an annual event in July where Lincoln County residents can drop off their Household Hazardous Waste at no charge. We post on our website and Facebook page the date and time of that event.
