 Processing Household Chemical Waste (HCW) for Recycling or Disposal

The facility's central location makes it easily accessible from all areas of the County. On average, more than 1,500 residential customers per month make use of this disposal site. Chemicals such as latex paint, various aerosol cans, pesticides, pool and spa maintenance chemicals, propane tanks, and other chemicals are brought to the main storage area for sorting and consolidation by Lee County employees.

Solid Waste Technicians consolidate the chemicals received into 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails for transport via a contracted waste handler to an approved recycling or disposal facility. Approximately 90 percent of the materials brought to the household chemical waste drop off facility are recycled.
