Westchester Household Chemical Clean-Up Days
Time: 9:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: Westchester Community College (WCC) campus in Valhalla
Westchester County's next Household Chemical Clean-Up Days is scheduled for Friday, June 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. and Saturday, June 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To learn about how to safely and responsibly dispose of many special items year-round, call the County's Household Chemical Info Line at (914) 813-5425 or log on to www.westchestergov.com.

Most properly labeled household chemicals are accepted at Clean-Up Days including antifreeze, brake fluid, gasoline, kerosene, metal polishes, pesticides and herbicides, septic tank and swimming pool cleaners, wood preservatives and more. Each household may deliver up to 10 car tires, and residents can exchange an old mercury thermometer for a new digital oral thermometer, free of charge, while supplies last. The county also accepts computer monitors and TVs at Chemical Clean-Up Days because both items contain tubes with a high level of lead.

Items that are not accepted and should not be delivered to a cleanup day include oil and latex paint, motor oil, vehicle and non-rechargeable batteries, and BBQ tanks. Westchester residents can dispose of these items, as well as several other special wastes, without having to wait for a Chemical Clean-Up Day.
