Household Hazardous Waste

Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients are considered to be Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special care when you dispose of them.

Improper disposal of HHW can include pouring them down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers or putting them in the trash. The dangers of such disposal methods might not be immediately obvious, but improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and pose a health threat.

The City of Visalia, along with Tulare County, operate the Visalia Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center located at 335 N. Cain St. The collection center is open Saturdays only from 8am to 1pm, except on Dump On Us days when it is open from 7am to noon.

More information on HHW and disposal options available can be found here Hazardous Waste Information.

While there are a few items that Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center cannot accept, we can help you find ways to properly dispose of them.
