A group of dangerous household chemicals.

We all have old cleaners, solvents, paints & stains, pesticides, medications, batteries, and other products stored in and around our homes. If not disposed of properly, this household hazardous waste (HHW) can pose a threat to human health and the environment.

A Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day, slated for Saturday, March 18, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., will provide Cleveland County residents a convenient way of properly disposing these items. Load them in your vehicle and bring them to the Cleveland County Public Health Center, located at 200 S. Post Road in Shelby, for prompt & friendly curbside service (attendants will unload for you). There’s no easier way to reduce clutter, improve the safety of your home, and protect the environment!

The event is co-sponsored by N.C. Cooperative Extension, Cleveland County Health Department, and NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Service Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program.
