How does the household hazardous waste program work?

The City Landfill does not accept household hazardous waste (HHW). HHW includes items such as:

  • Antifreeze
  • Brake fluid
  • Car batteries
  • Cleaners
  • Gasoline
  • Liquid paints
  • Motor oil and filters
  • Pesticides
  • Poisons
  • Solvents
  • Transmission fluid
  • Weed killer, etc.

These items should not be included in your weekly garbage collection. The City of High Point tries to hold quarterly HHW Events in High Point where residents may drop off these items along with other e-wastes. The dates for 2020-2021 are Aug. 29, 2020 | Nov. 7, 2020 | Feb. 6, 2021 | May 1, 2021.  Please call 336-883-3111 for more information.
