Join us to hear more about the countywide residential household hazardous waste program and its future. The program provides safe, legal, environmentally sound disposal options for residential household hazardous waste such as paint, solvents, and pesticides. Without these options, most household hazardous waste will be illegally and improperly disposed of (e.g., abandoned on streets, poured down drains, placed in garbage or recycling carts). Improper disposal often pollutes our waterways, detracts from property values, or forces the community or others to pay for cleanup (e.g., through street maintenance, wastewater, or stormwater budgets; or expenses to private property owners).

The countywide household hazardous waste collection program is currently paid for through a per ton fee on municipal solid waste disposed in landfills. However, the fee has not changed since 2000 and the program either needs to be cut back dramatically or provided with additional funding. These stakeholder meetings seek to gather feedback from single family and multi-family property owners regarding a proposed fee of less than $10 per year per dwelling unit to be paid with property tax bills each year.

For questions about the October 2013 meetings, please send them to hhwproject@stopwaste.orgor call Wes Sullens at 510-891-6500.
