New Facility Will Offer Free, Convenient Disposal Options for Alameda County Residents
Fremont's Household Hazardous Waste Facility opened its doors to Alameda County residents on July 2. This new facility will offer a free, safe, and convenient choice for residents to dispose of their household hazardous waste properly. Proper disposal keeps potentially hazardous materials out of the waste stream as well as storm drains and protects human health and the environment.
To protect customers who drop off household hazardous waste and the facility workers who handle it, materials must be packaged in sturdy, non-leaking closed containers. No individual container may be greater than five gallons or 50 pounds in size. Acceptable materials for drop-off include latex and oil-based paints, adhesives, used oil and filters, antifreeze, automotive batteries, garden-related items (i.e., fertilizers, ant traps), stains, varnishes, home generated sharps, bleach and cleaners, propane, and fluorescent tubes and bulbs.
