Oakland County’s NoHaz Collection team is here to help residents safely dispose of household hazardous materials ranging from pesticides, paints, air fresheners, propane cylinders, cleaning solutions, prescription medicines, and more. Though these items have made our lives easier, they can also be toxic to our health and environment when we use and dispose of them in our regular trash. Unlike industrial hazardous wastes, household hazardous wastes are not regulated.
Because so many items contain hazardous components, most people can identify a few products in their homes that are hazardous. Do you have items in mind that you want to properly dispose of? No commercial, contractor, business or institutional waste will be accepted. All liquids must be in sealed 5-gallon or smaller containers. Do you have items that you’re unsure about? View lists of accepted and non-accepted materials in the FAQ section of Advantage Oakland’s NoHaz web page or call the NoHaz Hotline at 248-858-5656.
