Drop-off Instructions

  • Please have drivers license and payment ready.  The HHW facility accepts cash, checks and credit cards.
  • When you arrive at the HHW Facility to drop off any items or materials, follow the instructions on the signs (stay to the right, and pull under the overhang to drop-off your materials).
  • Please remain inside your vehicle until you are the first car in line, and waiting at the stop sign.
  • You may then get out of your car, and a technician will come out with a cart and be ready to assist you.  Remember to bring help if you have heavy items to drop off.


: We serve one vehicle at a time and appreciate your patience. Have your driver’s license ready, and a check or cash if you are dropping off any items with a fee.  Please bring additional help if you intend to drop off large or heavy items.

Weather Related Closures

The HHW Facility will likely close without advance notice in the event of bad or dangerous weather (for example, if the National Weather Service issues a Blizzard Warning, Winter Storm Warning, Wind Chill Warning, etc). Should that occur, the HHW Facility will then reopen for the next scheduled operational day (see Collection Schedule).
