Household hazardous waste is accepted at either of the transfer stations in Hubbard County from April 15th through September 15th.  When you arrive at the transfer station go into the office and ask where your specific household hazardous waste should be placed.  If you have items that are still usable be sure to put them in the materials exchange area.

If the waste is from a business in Hubbard County please contact us before bringing the waste in.  

Materials exchange:

If you have household hazardous waste that is still usable those items can be set aside.  Residents can then browse their these usable materials and take any for no charge.
