Time: 8:30 AM - 12:15 PM PST
Event Description:
The Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program helps residents properly dispose and/or recycle their residential hazardous waste.

What is Household Hazardous Waste?
Household hazardous waste (HHW) is waste from your home that is toxic, corrosive, flammable or reactive based on its chemical properties. Products such as paint thinner, toilet bowl cleaner, and rat bait exhibit these hazardous characteristics. It is illegal to dispose of such dangerous wastes in the regular trash or dump them down the drain.  We urge residents and business owners to use the County of San Mateo's HHW Program for proper disposal.

As part of this special collection event, you can drop off HHW materials at the selected location in Menlo Park. If you are unable to attend this event, please use the link provided to schedule an appointment directly through County offices.  Appointments are required.

Acceptable items include
  • Acids/bases
  • Aerosol cans
  • Automotive supplies (i.e.: car batteries, motor oil, antifreeze, break fluids)
  • Cleaning products
  • Fertilizers
  • Pesticides
  • Flammable liquids
  • Fluorescent lights (compact and tubes)
  • Paints
