Here's how to dispose of any hazardous waste you have at home!


Over the past few months, Penn Waste employees have seen an increased volume of household hazardous waste in our waste and recycling collections. Household hazardous waste can encompass many different materials that you may have sitting in your garage, your kitchen or anywhere else in your house. In this post, we are going to focus on three different materials, and give you some tips for proper disposal of these materials.

We will be focusing on Batteries, more specifically rechargeable batteries, Pool Chemicals, Live Ammunition and Hot Ashes. All of these materials should be handled with discretion and not disposed of in your regular trash (unless noted below) or recyclable collections.
