Many household products contain chemicals that cause contamination to the environment if disposed of improperly. The Bucks County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program provides the opportunity for residents to get rid of unwanted hazardous chemicals, such as oil-based paints, pesticides, herbicides, caustic cleaners, pool chemicals, mercury, and automotive and rechargeable batteries, by offering a safe and easy disposal solution.
Residents can drive to any of the collection sites listed, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, rain or shine, and their household hazardous waste will be removed from their vehicles and sorted for safe disposal.
No electronics (TVs, computers, or other electronic devices) will be collected this year, due to the effects of a Pennsylvania law, the Covered Devices Recycling Act.
