• 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.
