Household Hazardous Waste
What is Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)?
Household Hazardous Waste are products commonly used in the home that contain potentially hazardous ingredients. These products are required under State law to be disposed of properly. Therefore, it is illegal to dispose of HHW in the garbage, pour down any stormdrain, or to pour on the ground. Fremont offers convenient and free alternatives to dispose of HHW for Alameda County Residents.
Acceptable Items for Drop Off
Sharps are accepted in approved sharps containers. Approved containers may be found at local pharmacies and/or clinics. For more information about the new Sharps disposal law visit CalRecycle. Read about the Importance of Safe Sharps Disposal.
