Hazardous Waste Services

Hazardous materials placed in the waste stream can present dangers to solid waste workers, the public, the environment, and to facilities. The goal of the Hazardous Waste Services section is to reduce these risks by operating public HHW collection facilities, providing information and assistance to business, promoting other collection services, and managing various internal SWA protection programs.
