Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event
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.
Radioactive, explosive, medical, and commercial waste is prohibited.
Please refer to San Mateo County Health for additional information and/or questions. This event is co-sponsored by the City of Menlo Park and San Mateo County.
Local businesses and organizations are encouraged to submit their events to the Chamber’s community calendar. Please adhere to the following guidelines for all event submissions:
