Household Hazardous Waste Program

The Ocean County Household Hazardous Waste Program holds collection events each Spring & Fall, offering residents and homeowners of Ocean County a responsible option for disposal of common household haz wastes. All materials brought to these events, with the exception of oil and gasoline, should be in their original containers.

Our HHW program is not open to businesses/commercial establishments, schools, or municipal/state/local government agencies. Residents only please.

Remember that these programs cost $$ to fund and should be utilized responsibly. Any toxic product you purchase will eventually require disposal. Read labels before you purchase household products and note ingredients, proper usage, proper storage & disposal, and hazard warnings. Is there a non-toxic option? Watch for words such as “Toxic”, “Danger”, “Flammable”, “Corrosive”, etc. Info on hazard symbols.

KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE FROM HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS: Buy only what you need & use what you buy, look for toxic-free alternatives and make sure to store materials properly & dispose of them at our events.
