Bucks County Hazardous Waste

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.

Assuming we move to the green phase, the next scheduled event is August 8th at The Bucks County Technical High School in Fairless Hills.

The April 4th event has been rescheduled for November 21st at the Bucks County Community College, Newtown Campus.

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.
