Hazardous Waste doesn’t belong in your garbage or recycling collection containers. Placing it there is illegal and unsafe for our workers, our community, and the environment. Not sure if something is hazardous? If the item is flammable, toxic, explosive, poisonous, or contains mercury or heavy metals, it’s hazardous.
A limited variety of hazardous items can be delivered to Blue Line Transfer. Alternatively, San Mateo County’s Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG) Program accepts many types of hazardous waste from those who qualify. Visit smhealth.org/vsqg to learn more.
