Weekly collection of household hazardous waste at the Yolo County Central Landfill will continue every Friday and Saturday, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., through the winter holiday season, with the exception of Friday, Nov. 29.

The landfill, at 44090 County Road 28H northeast of Davis, will be open for non-hazardous waste on Nov. 29, but it will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Beyond the household hazardous waste collection program, the landfill accepts hazardous waste from businesses in Yolo County, including items that are corrosive, reactive, toxic or ignitable. Businesses in the areas of construction, printing, equipment or vehicle maintenance, furniture refinishing and farms/ranches that create hazardous waste are encouraged to use the program.

Business hazardous waste is accepted by appointment only and there is a fee for disposal. For more information about this program or to schedule an appointment, call 800-207-8222.

Materials that are accepted from the public and businesses 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, old medications and containerized syringes.

Yolo County also operates a reuse program on Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Household cleaning supplies, paint and lawn, garden and automotive products are available to residents at no charge. Items have original labels and usually are nearly full.

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