Household Hazardous Waste Community Collection
Products may be considered hazardous if the label includes the words: Pesticides, Caustic, Acid, Poison, Danger, Warning, or Flammable.
Please do NOT bring the following items: Gas cylinders, biologically active materials, radioactive materials, explosives or ammunitions.
If you would like to dispose of any household hazardous waste before the community collection day, you can drop it off at the Orange County Landfill (Mon - Sat, 8am to 5pm) or at the Orange County McLeod Transfer Station (Wed & Sat, 8am to 5pm).
Freon Containing Devices
Title VI of the Clean Air Act prohibits the release of freon into the atmosphere and requires the safe disposal of freon containing devices. Orange County has complied with that requirement through the implementation of a successful freon recover program at the Orange County Solid Waste division.
Air conditioners, freezers, dehumidifiers and refrigerators are examples of items considered to be freon containing devices. Freon containing devices are not included in the curbside collection program unless a licensed professional has checked the item and certified all freon has been removed.
If residents don't wish to have a licensed professional remove the freon from their item, another option is to deliver the unit themselves to the closest solid waste facility where our contractor will properly remove the freon. Citizens may bring freon containing devices to the Orange County Landfill or the McLeod transfer Station McleodTransferStation for proper handling and disposal. A minimum disposal charge of $5.25 will apply.
Fluorescent Light Bulbs
Fluorescent light bulbs and tubes contain mercury, so they have to be disposed of correctly. Often, the county waste management people have a way to handle this kind of thing, like turpentine and paint. Some counties charge money to take it away. Some have a drop off location on certain days (free). Some have a certain day a month that they accept hazardous waste at curbside (free).
Check with the county waste disposal.
