Household Hazardous Waste is categorized as common household products containing hazardous materials that may pose a threat to the health of people and/or the environment. Household hazardous wastes includes chemicals such as acids/alkalines, aerosols, antifreeze, bleach, cleaners and polishes, disinfectants, gasoline, iodine, paint, etc.

Some wastes require special handling, but not through our Household Hazardous Waste Area. Items that are not liquid, and are not as dangerous as Household Hazardous Waste materials can be brought to our Specialty Waste area on campus. Items that can be delivered to our Specialty Waste area include solid (non-liquid) items such as appliances, batteries, computer equipment, fluorescent light bulbs, propane tanks, tires, and televisions.

NOTE: Our Specialty Waste and Household Hazardous Waste areas have different operating hours. To view the hours of operation for each area, visit our Hours page. Proof of Medina County residency will be required.

The Clean Air Act prohibits the disposal of CFC’s and HCFC’s into landfills.  Refrigerants/freon in refrigerators, air conditioners, dehumidifiers or any other appliance containing refrigerants/freon will only be collected if the customer has had the refrigerant/freon removed and the unit is tagged by a certified technician prior to disposal.
