HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE>>

For information on how to dispose of HHW, please click on the following link: Loudoun County Household Hazardous Waste

The following Unacceptable Waste items will not be collected, and should not be placed in the trash or set out for pickup (*see exception below for latex or water based paint). This list is limited and includes other dangerous materials as determined by state, federal or local law, or in the reasonable judgment of Patriot Disposal.

asbestos

construction debris

contaminated soil

dead animals

highly-flammable substances

infectious or medical waste

liquid waste

manure

paint:

  • *Latex:  do not put cans of liquid paint in your trash. When a liquid paint can is picked up in your trash receptacle and dumped into a trash truck, the force of the compactor will cause the can to explode. Paint gets all over the truck and will seep out on the street. If you have paint that needs to be discarded, ensure that you have thoroughly dried it out in the can or pour onto newspaper to dry, or mix with a chemical paint hardener (available at hardware stores), sawdust, mulch, or kitty litter. Place dried paint cans on top of the toter with the can lid off. Liquid paint poses a hazard to staff and to equipment.
  • Paint, Oil-based and paint thinner:  take to a Loudoun County HHW Event.

petroleum

radioactive materials

toxic materials
