Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) refers to the items and substances generated in the home that are potentially hazardous to people and the environment if not handled responsibly when the owner is done with them. These items and substances can be flammable, poisonous, corrosive, or may even be explosive. VIWMA requests your assistance in helping us to keep HHW out of the environment and the landfills and transfer station by participating in the HHW Program.

The HHW Program currently only accepts electronic devices and fluorescent bulbs from residents. Call for more information and about the program for government agencies and small generator businesses.
