Household Hazardous Waste

How do you know if a product is hazardous?
The label will give you enough information to decide whether the product is hazardous or not.
Look for these signal words:                

danger sign
Means the substance is extremely flammable, corrosive, or highly toxic.
poison sign
Means the substance is highly toxic.
warning sign
Means the substance is moderately toxic.
caution sign
Means the substance may be mildly hazardous.

 Also look for a description of the hazard advice on what to do to avoid the hazard, instructions for safe handling and storage, first aid instructions, and directions for disposal.

What to Bring

If you have leftover products
- Keep it in the original container and make sure it is labeled. Store as directed on label, in an area safe from children & pets. Give leftover product (except pesticides) to someone else who can use it up. If none of these options work, be safe and bring the leftover product to a household hazardous waste collection, or the Olmsted County HHW Facility.


Dodge County has a cooperative HHW program with Olmsted, Wabasha, and Goodhue Counties. There is no fee for households to bring waste to a Mobile HHW Collection Event. Due to budget restraints, Dodge County will not be hosting a mobile collection of HHW in 2018. Dodge County residents can bring hazardous waste to the Olmsted County Regional Facility located in Rochester at 305 Silver Creek Road NE near the County's Waste-to-Energy Facility. Hours of operation are Monday - Saturday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. 2018.  2018 HHW Mobile Collection Schedule
