Spring cleaning, curbside
The Douglas County Health Department will continue its curbside household hazardous waste disposal program again this year.
If you have hazardous waste from a painting project, old oil from your car’s maintenance, or other waste from your recent DIY project, Douglas County Health Department can help you safely dispose of it.
In place of a one-time annual event, the Douglas County Health Department is partnering with Waste Management in 2023 to provide Douglas County residents with a low-cost service for household hazardous waste removal year-round.
Toxic household products can be harmful to pets, wildlife, sanitation workers, our health and the environment if poured down the drain, toilet or storm sewer or put in the trash.
Safely disposing of household hazardous waste safeguards families, protects water quality, conserves space in landfills and reduces illegal dumping.
This service is brought to you by the Douglas County Health Department’s Environmental Health Division. Environmental Health focuses on preventing food-borne illnesses in restaurants; preventing the spread of communicable diseases in childcare facilities, body art facilities and water systems; and mitigating other environmental conditions that could be harmful to your health.
This curbside service is available to Douglas County residents for $30. For additional information or to set up an appointment for household pick-up, visit https://wmatyourdoor.com/residential/ or call 800-449-7587.
