Clear Hazards Out of Your Home Before the Holidays
(Woodland, CA) – The Yolo County Department of Community Services, Division of Integrated Waste Management holds weekly collection of household hazardous waste at the Yolo County Central Landfill (44090 County Road 28H) on Fridays and Saturdays, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. However, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, the landfill will be closed on Thursday, November 23 and the Household Hazardous Waste Facility will be closed on Friday, November 24. While the landfill will also be closed on December 25 and January 1, the Household Hazardous Waste Facility will be open every Friday and Saturday in December and January.
Household hazardous waste materials that will be accepted from the public (and businesses by appointment) include: batteries; fluorescent bulbs or tubes; used motor oil and filters; cleaning supplies; lighter fluid; antifreeze; aerosols; garden pesticides and herbicides; latex or oil based paints; solvents; poisons; spent electrical devices such as holiday lights, televisions and old cell phones. The Household Hazardous Waste Facility also accepts household medical waste such as expired over the counter medications and containerized syringes.
The Yolo County Central Landfill also provides a reuse program which is open to the public during the same hours as the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program. The reuse program makes household cleaning supplies, lawn, garden and automotive products, and household paint available to residents at no charge. Often, these products are dropped off at the household hazardous facility simply because they are no longer needed. Items provided through the reuse program have original labels and are nearly full.
Household hazardous waste events are sponsored by the Yolo County Department of Community Services, Division of Integrated Waste Management. For more information on proper disposal of household hazardous waste, call (530) 666-8856 or visit: www.yolocounty.org (select Landfill link).
