The Harris County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility opened March 10, 2010 and provides free services to approximately 1.3 million residents of unincorporated Harris County. Our services allow residents a convenient, safe, and environmentally compliant way to dispose of the chemicals and some other non-hazardous recyclable items used in their home. The facility is also used as a point of operations for disaster management in the event of a hurricane, flood, tornado, or other type disaster.

We do not have a home pick-up service. You must bring your items to the facility and we offload them for you. For your safety we request that you put your vehicle in park, turn off the ignition, and remain in your vehicle. Trained staff will pack the items according to all Federal, state, and local regulations and send them for proper disposal using best environmental management practices. Approximately 75% of all items collected are sent for recycling or energy recovery. The remaining percentage is disposed using treatment techniques that ensure the hazardous components are completely destroyed.

As of October 1, 2020, the facility has served over 45,000 Harris County households and collected over 4.3 million pounds of Household Hazardous Waste.
