Household hazardous waste accepted Fridays, Saturdays at landfill

Yolo County offers weekly collection of household hazardous waste at its central landfill, 44090 County Road 28H, off County Road 102 between Davis and Woodland, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.

The program can accept household hazardous waste only from Yolo County residents. Infectious medical waste will not be accepted. Business hazardous waste from small-quantity generators is accepted by appointment only, and includes a disposal fee. Call (866) 714-8470 to schedule an appointment.

Senior or disabled residents who cannot drive, and who have household hazardous waste in need of proper disposal, may schedule a free pickup of waste by calling (866) 714-8470. Residents 65 years and older qualify for this service, which is open to all households in Yolo County.

Materials that will be accepted include batteries; fluorescent bulbs or tubes; used motor oil and filters; cleaning supplies; lighter fluid; antifreeze; aerosols; garden pesticides and herbicides; latex or oil-based paints; solvents; poisons; electrical switches/relays; pilot light sensors; mercury thermostats; and old medicines, but not controlled substances and containerized syringes.

Since the household hazardous waste drop-off area is now open weekly, the reuse program is available weekly, as well. The reuse program makes household cleaning supplies, lawn, garden and automotive products, and household paint available to residents at no charge.

For more information on proper disposal of household hazardous waste, call (530) 666‑8856 or visit www.yolocounty.org.
