How do I dispose of pesticide containers as household hazardous waste?
Bring containers with remaining pesticide from your home to our Hazardous Waste Drop-off at the Shady Grove Transfer Station and Processing Facility. This drop-off is open daily. See details about our Hazardous Waste Drop-off program.
Can I recycle my pesticide container?
No, do not recycle your pesticide containers.
Pesticide residue acts as a containment in empty containers, making them unacceptable for recycling. And, when residents send containers with remaining products to the Recycling Center, the products can create dangerous situations.
