Fremont Provides Safe and Convenient Toxic Waste Disposal

Household Hazardous Waste

The Fremont Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Facility provides residents with an environmentally safe and convenient method to dispose of hazardous waste. The facility is open every week from Wednesday to Saturday, and drop-off is easy and free of cost. Last year, over 16,000 households brought in over one million pounds of unwanted hazardous waste from their homes.

A typical home contains an array of hazardous household products for maintaining cars, cleaning and disinfecting homes, painting, and gardening. The health and safety of our families, neighborhoods, and environment are threatened when household hazardous waste is stored or disposed of improperly.

The City encourages residents to take advantage of the free Fremont Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Facility instead of disposing hazardous waste in the garbage, sink, toilet, or storm drain, which can have harmful effects on our communities and the environment.

Some of the unwanted paints, cleaners, sealants, and garden products left at the drop-off facility are moved to the Fremont Recycling & Transfer Station’s re-use area. These items are available for free at 41149 Boyce Rd.

For more information, please visit StopWaste or call 800-606-6606. Some small businesses can also use the site and should call 510-670-6460 for more information.
