Hazardous waste in my home?

There are many types of hazardous waste in the average home. Items such as batteries, paint, drain cleaners and bleach can hurt our environment if not disposed of properly.

How can I reduce household hazardous waste (HHW) in my home?

USE IT UP! If you use all of a product with hazardous ingredients in accordance with label directions, there is no HHW to manage. Containers that once held a hazardous product are not considered HHW if they are completely empty. If you can't use it up, see if someone else can use the remaining product.

Where can I dispose of HHW?

For your convenience, we operate a household hazardous waste facility located at 1044 West Washington Avenue in Escondido .

This facility is open on an appointment-only basis, two Saturdays per month, to City of Escondido residents only. Please call (760) 745-3203 between 8am and 5pm, Monday – Friday to find out the available dates and schedule an appointment. This will ensure that we efficiently process and serve our customers. When you arrive for your appointment, use the center express lane and follow it all the way to the back of our facility. Do not stop at scales. For more information please call (760) 745-3203.

The Escondido hazardous waste disposal facility is open these Saturdays by appointment only:
