Permitted Household Hazardous Waste Facilities

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection and storage facilities receive HHW from residents on a regular and frequent basis. These facilities receive a permit from the NYSDEC. These facilities are often called permanent facilities and may be operated by either the municipality, hired contractor, or private entity. NYSDEC also provides grant assistance to those municipal facilities upon request of the municipality.

Some cities, towns and counties provide HHW collection during one-day or two-day events during the year. If your community does not have a Permanent HHW Facility, check out the Summary of HHW collection programs page to see if your community hosts HHW collection days.
