Household Hazardous Waste

About the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

Loudoun County conducts several Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events throughout the year to collect used and unwanted household hazardous materials such as gasoline and household chemicals.

For these events, a hazardous waste management contractor comes to the county to accept and package the waste for shipment to an appropriate processing facility.
