Household Hazardous Waste Event- Ivy MUC

Friday, September 22 - 9:00 AM

Each year the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority holds a larger scale household hazardous waste collection day. On this day, RSWA accepts additional hazardous substances and ensures that they are properly categorized and directed to a permitted offsite hazardous substance management location. The materials accepted on this day include:

  • Acids
  • Adhesives
  • Antifreeze
  • Batteries
  • CFLs
  • Floor and furniture polish
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Gasoline
  • Household cleaners
  • Kerosene
  • Motor oil
  • Paint and paint-related products and solvents
  • Pesticides

Hazardous materials such as paints and stains, cleansers and polishes, motor oil and antifreeze, and pesticides and herbicides, to name only a few exist in our homes and garages and must be disposed of carefully. Typically, these products have the words “Danger,” “Warning,” or “Caution” on the label so use caution and dispose of them responsibly. After all, we have only one environment to protect from these potentially dangerous chemicals.

Dangerous reactions are possible when hazardous materials are combined, so never mix used motor oil, antifreeze, gasoline, paint, paint thinner, pesticides, solvents or other potentially hazardous liquids together. RSWA urges everyone to protect the environment and never pour these items onto the ground or down a storm drain. Bring them to RSWA for proper waste management. Hazardous material should also be segregated from your daily solid waste stream and stored safely pending proper disposal.
