Loudoun County Hazardous Waste Collection
The Loudoun County Office of Solid Waste Management will host a Household
Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection event from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on
Saturday, October 18, 2008, at Harmony Intermediate School, 38174 West
Colonial Highway, Hamilton.
Typical HHW items are oil-based paints/stains/varnishes, paint thinners; old
fuels including gas/oil mixes, kerosene, and diesel fuel; and cleaners such
as oven cleaners, drain cleaners, bathroom cleaners, and all purpose
cleaners. Other HHW items are scouring powders, mothballs, mildew removers,
metal polishes, rust removers, wood preservatives, furniture polishes and
waxes, and pool chemicals. Fluorescent bulbs are also accepted.
Used motor oil, antifreeze, automobile batteries and propane tanks will not
be accepted at any HHW collection events. They can be recycled year round at
the Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility.
Also, latex or water-based paints are not a hazardous waste. Dry or solidify
leftover paint for disposal with your household garbage.
