Alameda County Hazardous Waste Facility - Hazardous Waste Disposal

Alameda Hazardous Waste Disposal


Hazardous waste can't be thrown out with the garbage, recycling or organics. Before tossing it out, check the label. If it's marked Danger, Warning, Poisonous, Toxic, or Flammable, it's hazardous and requires special handling.

The County accepts the following:

  • Pesticides
  • Automotive batteries and fluids
  • Fertilizers
  • Pool chemicals
  • Photo chemicals
  • Paint/varnish
  • Toxic cleaning products
  • Mercury-containing items (thermometers & fluorescent lamps for example)
  • Medications

ACI does offer curbside collection of used motor oil and filters. Please review the handling instructions below:

  • Motor oil: Used motor oil and oil filters are collected on your day of service. Set jugs and filters next to the carts, NOT INSIDE. Free jugs and oil filter bags may be requested from ACI or you may use your own 1-gallon, screw top container. Be sure the top can be securely closed. Limit of 2 jugs of oil per pickup. No other automotive liquids. Do not mix oil with other fluids. Oil filters must be contained in clear zipper-lock bags.
  • Household batteries and fluorescent lamps may be dropped off at the local ACI office. Refer to our contact page for location and hours. Please put a piece of tape over the positive terminal on all batteries.

How do I dispose of e-waste?
Electronics need special handling. You can properly dispose of a limited amount of e-waste through the Clean Up Program. You may also take e-waste to the County drop-off. Click here for details.
