Fresno County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event

Today the Fresno County Department of Public Works and Planning will hold a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Event for Fresno and Clovis residents at the Fresno Fairgrounds.

The event drew more than 800 vehicles, mostly residents from Fresno and Clovis, to remove hazardous waste materials from their homes and drop them off at no cost for safe disposal. The waste collection event was one of the largest of its kind ever held in Fresno County.

A typical home can contain an array of household hazardous products for cleaning, painting, beautifying, lubricating and disinfecting the house, yard, workshop and garage. These items should not be placed in the regular trash can and must be disposed of in a safe environment.
