Household Hazardous Waste
The City of High Point is committed to providing services that protect our environment in a fiscally responsible manner. A new program has been created to provide for the proper disposal of Household Hazardous Waste. Certain household wastes are not accepted in your roll-out cart, because they can be hazardous to our environment and our collection workers.
