Allegany County Household Hazardous Waste Day


Allegany County will be hosting its 23rd Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection on September 10, 2022.


Since 2010, the Allegany County Solid Waste Department, with the help of all County Residents, has collected and safely disposed of more than 150,000 pounds of Household Hazardous Waste. Some of the most common items accepted include pesticides and insecticides, fertilizers, pool chemicals, cleaning chemicals, and oil-based paints.


Beginning this year, in coordination with PaintCare and under the New York State Product Stewardship Plan, we will also be able to accept latex and other household paints.
