Hazardous Materials, Tires & Electronics

Hazardous Materials are ignitable, reactive, toxic, or corrosive. Materials that have these characteristics and come from households cannot be disposed of through normal trash collection. They are unsafe for humans, animals, and the environment. Never dispose of hazardous items in the trash, down drains and sewers, or into the environment.

The Washington County Environmental Affairs Office operates a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Center where residents can drop off HHW for free. Please contact the office for more information.

The items that are accepted at the HHW Collection Center are outlined below.

Electronic Waste

Please check with the Washington County Environmental Affairs Office for the price of recycling per unit. Fayetteville residents are currently eligible for receiving a coupon to waive the recycling fee for an item. Please ask for a coupon at the HHW site when bringing in an electronic item for recycling. Acceptable equipment includes TVs, computers, VCRs, and printers, and many other kinds of household electronics.


Residents may bring in four passenger tires for free and each additional tire includes a small fee. Tires with rims cost extra. Tires larger than passenger size will incur a higher fee per tire.

If you have any questions regarding disposal of these materials, please contact the Washington County Environmental Affairs.
