Household Hazardous Waste

We accept HHW during regular business hours!

Disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is free of charge for the residential households of Seminole County for many common substances found in the home. HHW items are not picked up at curbside and require special handling and disposal.

HHW is accepted FREE OF CHARGE at all times during regular business hours at the Central Transfer Station. The Central Transfer Station is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 am - 5:30pm. Residents with large quantities of HHW - Please contact us in advance of delivering your materials to our collection center.

The Household Hazardous Waste Center does not accept waste from businesses.

*Due to fire safety concerns, we require that a County employee pour gasoline for customers that want their container back.  We have someone available to pour gasoline on Mondays (other than County holidays) between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM or customers can call 407-665-2250 to schedule an appointment for other times. 

  • Used Oil cans also be disposed of at several Drop Off Facilities.
  • Common alkaline batteries are not hazardous and should be disposed of with regular garbage.
