Household Hazardous Waste

Hazardous and Universal Waste, including Electronic Waste, are rapidly growing problems that account for significant amounts of toxic waste in landfills. Items such as electronics, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, paints, pesticides, cleaning products, old medications and other chemicals are illegal to put in the garbage or pour down a drain or gutter because they will contaminate the soil, drinking water and air.

RethinkWaste continues to offer the Door-to-Door Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection program to the Atherton community.

Residents simply contact At Your Door Special Collection, the company contracted by RethinkWaste to provide the service, and schedule an appointment for the pick up of HHW materials from their home. Step by Step instructions can be found on the Rethink Website.
