Household Hazardous Waste
The City of Tracy in partnership with San Joaquin County offers a free Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Event in Tracy annually, providing there is money in the budget. This year the event will be taking place on September 9, 2017 from 9am - 2pm at the Tracy Municipal Airport located at 5749 South Tracy Boulevard. San Joaquin County residents can take their HHW year round Thursday - Saturday from 9am - 3pm at 7850 R.A. Bridgeford Street, Stockton, CA, free of charge.
San Joaquin County residents can dispose of household hazardous waste in and around their homes, as well as unwanted electronics (E-Waste) and universal waste (U-Waste) at these events or at the HHW facility.
HHW products are usually marked with caution/warning labels and contain hazardous chemicals that may be toxic, flammable, corrosive or reactive. It is illegal to dispose of these items in the garbage, down drains, or onto the ground because they contain dangerous materials that threaten human health and the environment.
In addition to HHW, it is also illegal for consumers to dispose of unwanted electronics and universal waste in the garbage. Typical E-Waste and U-Waste items found in households may contain toxic or corrosive materials which can also pose a threat to the environment and our health. These items will also be collected FREE of charge.
