Household Hazardous Waste

Households contain many products which can be hazardous to the health of humans, animals, and the environment. Unused and leftover portions of these products are called household hazardous waste (HHW). Washington County Environmental Affairs & Recycling in Fayetteville, Prairie Grove, Springdale, Huntsville, and St. Paul have collection centers.

Program Guidelines:
• Only residential quantities of HHW are accepted
• No explosives
• All items must be labeled. No unknown chemicals will be accepted.
