Household Hazardous Waste

Certain types of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) have the potential to cause physical injury to sanitation workers, contaminate septic tanks or wastewater treatment systems if poured down drains or toilets, and present hazards to children and pets if left around the house. While ReWorks’ Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center (HHWRC) accepts numerous HHW, there are a limited number of items that require special handling or that can be recycled elsewhere during the months when our facility is closed.

Read product labels for disposal directions to reduce the risk of products exploding, igniting, leaking, mixing with other chemicals, or posing other hazards on the way to a disposal facility. Even empty containers of HHW can pose hazards because of the residual chemicals that might remain.


Summit County residents only! No business, school, or other non-residential waste accepted. No containers larger than five gallons will be accepted.

The Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center Will Reopen June 1, 2017

HOURS: 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM Every Thursday, June through the end of September

Closed during severe weather

The HHWRC will close during severe weather and severe weather warnings (lightning, strong winds, heavy rain) until it is safe to continue operations. This is for your protection and that of the technicians on site.

Why recycle HHW?

Recycling of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) conserves resources and energy that would be expended in the production of more products. Proper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger human health and the environment. ReWorks provides Summit County residents with a safe and convenient option
