Household Hazardous Waste
Hazardous Materials are ignitable, reactive, toxic, or corrosive. Materials that have these characteristics cannot be disposed of through normal trash collection. They are unsafe for humans, animals, and the environment. Never dispose of hazardous items in the trash, down drains and sewers, or into the environment. For more information about hazardous waste, visit the EPA's web page on proper management of hazardous waste materials.
The City of Fayetteville hosts a household hazardous waste drop-off trailer available to residents every Thursday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Note: We do NOT accept tires, electronics or latex paints at the trailer in Fayetteville. Please take electronics to Free Geek or Boston Mountain Solid Waste. Latex paint is not considered a household hazardous waste, and once completely solid can be placed in household trash. Here are some helpful tips to expedite the drying process:
- Add an absorbent to the latex paint (cat litter or sawdust).
- Let paint dry while it absorbs the cat litter (approximately one hour).
- Place dried latex paint in your household trash.
