How does the household hazardous waste program work?

The City Landfill does not accept household hazardous waste (HHW). HHW includes items such as:

  • Antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Car batteries
  • Cleaners
  • Gasoline
  • Liquid paints
  • Motor oil and filters
  • Pesticides
  • Poisons
  • Solvents
  • Transmission fluid
  • Weed killer, etc.

These items should not be included in your weekly garbage collection. The City of High Point holds quarterly HHW Events here residents may drop off these items along with other e-wastes. More information including dates can be found at here.
