Household Hazardous Waste

About the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

Loudoun County typically conducts eight Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events from March through November to collect used and unwanted household hazardous materials such as gasoline and household chemicals, and the events are held at various locations throughout the county, not at the county landfill.  Hazardous materials generated by a business, organization, or other non-residential source are not accepted at these events.  

A hazardous waste management contractor manages each collection event to accept and package the waste for shipment to an appropriate processing facility.

Procedures for HHW Events

  • The event is a drive-thru, in which residents are instructed to remain in their vehicles and allow event staff to unload any items accepted for disposal. 
  • Gasoline will be emptied from personal gas cans and the cans will be returned upon request.
