Household Waste

Potential Hazardous Wastes


Hazardous waste may be hiding in your home. You don’t have to look far to find products that quickly become household hazardous waste. Common potential hazardous waste include:
  • Poisons
  • Corrosives
  • Toxics
  • Flammables
    • Examples
      • Leftover or unused fuels
      • Paints
      • Pesticides
      • Fertilizers
      • Car batteries
      • Antifreeze
      • Motor oil
      • Spot removers
      • Cleaning Chemicals
      • Electronics
      • Flourescent Bulbs
      • Fuels
      • Propane
      • Automotive
Such chemicals can cause house fires and accidental poisonings. If these chemicals are stored or disposed of improperly, they may seep into our environment and poison our land, air and water.

Note that explosives, radioactive materials and tires are NOT accepted.

Disposal of Hazardous Waste


It is illegal and dangerous to dump household hazardous waste down sewers, storm drains, or in the garbage can. Water quality is an important issue for Salt Lake County residents because of our limited water supply and growing population. We need to do everything possible to protect and preserve the quality of our ground and surface waters.

There are two facilities where these and other items may be disposed of or recycled throughout the year.
  • Salt Lake Valley Household Hazardous Waste Facility
    • 6030 West California Avenue (1400 South)
    • Ph: (801) 541-4078
    • Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
  • Trans-Jordan Landfill
    • 10473 S. Bacchus Highway, South Jordan, UT 84095-0610
    • Ph: (801) 569-8994
    • Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Please dispose of your household hazardous waste properly so we can keep our residents and our environment clean.

Residential waste only; business waste is NOT accepted.
