Recycling

2016 Household Hazardous Waste Recycling

2016 Bucks County HHW Collection Events
Household products containing toxic chemicals, like pesticides, oil-based paints, solvents, cleaning products, weed killers and automotive batteries can be a threat to people and the environment if improperly discarded. Never throw these materials into the trash, as the toxic chemicals may harm sanitation workers, or result in fires in collection vehicles. It is also not safe to pour them into a sink or storm drain as they can end up in the environment polluting the air, water, or soil.

2016 Southeastern Pennsylvania Regional HHW Collection Events
Household Hazardous Waste Recycling throughout Southeastern PA. Residents of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties may attend any of the events throughout the region. (It's always a good practice to check with the County hosting the event prior to attending in case of changes.)
