Household Hazardous Waste

About the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

Loudoun County conducts eight Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events from March through November to collect used and unwanted household hazardous materials such as gasoline and household chemicals, and the events are held at various locations throughout the county, not at the County landfill.  The event locations are listed below under "Resources", see "Schedule of HHW Events".

A hazardous waste management contractor manages each collection event to accept and package the waste for shipment to an appropriate processing facility.

Limit Per Household

  • 15 gallons of liquid household waste
    (container size no larger than five gallons)
  • 40 pounds of solid household waste

Please note that participants must provide proof of Loudoun County residency such as a driver’s license or utility bill.

The county also conducts two hazardous waste disposal collection events each year for local businesses under the Business Hazardous Waste Program.
