All HHW events are on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and are for Loudoun County residents only. The remaining events are scheduled for:

  Saturday, October 23, 2010

HHW includes items such as fluorescent bulbs, oil-based paints/stains/varnishes, paint thinners, metal polishes, rust removers, wood preservatives, furniture polish, waxes, bathroom, kitchen and oven cleaners, pool chemicals, old fuels including gas/oil mixes, kerosene and diesel fuel, and many others. Latex or water-based paints are not a hazardous waste and can be dried or solidified and disposed of in your household garbage.

Used motor oil, antifreeze, automobile batteries, lead-acid batteries and propane tanks will not be accepted at any HHW collection events. They can be recycled year round at the Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility, 21101 Evergreen Mills Road in Leesburg.
