What is Considered Hazardous Waste (HHW)?

Household Hazardous Waste are substances that may be harmful to you, animals, or the environment when not handled properly and can result in the pollution of groundwater, lakes, rivers and soil when disposed of improperly.

Residents of Norfolk County are encouraged to dispose of their household hazardous waste at one of our temporary depots in the spring and fall.
