One-Day Event is Sunday, November 5

On Sunday, November 5, 2017, Baltimore County residents may bring household hazardous waste (HHW) items to a one-day collection event scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Western Acceptance Facility, located at 3310 Transway Road in Halethorpe. The event is hosted by the Baltimore County Bureau of Solid Waste Management in cooperation with the Police and Fire departments.

Baltimore County residents may bring household chemicals, lawn and garden chemicals, automotive fluids, cleaning solvents, swimming pool chemicals, cooking oil, rechargeable batteries, mercury thermometers and thermostats, and fluorescent light bulbs. No trash or electronics will be accepted at this event.


As of Friday, September 1, the Baltimore County residential household hazardous waste (HHW) drop-off site will be moving from the Eastern Sanitary Landfill in White Marsh to the Central Acceptance Facility in Cockeysville. This relocation is an effort to maximize convenience for residents across the County in a cost-effective way.

To help ease this transition, both the Cockeysville and White Marsh HHW sites will operate simultaneously for a month-long period. Saturday, September 30 will be the final day of operation for the Eastern Sanitary Landfill’s HHW site. After this date, paint and hazardous materials (including pesticides, herbicides, cooking oil, swimming pool chemicals, and solvents) will no longer be accepted at the Eastern Sanitary Landfill. Items such as antifreeze, electronics, fluorescent light bulbs, gasoline, mercury thermometers, motor oil, and rechargeable batteries will continue to be accepted from residents at both the Eastern Sanitary Landfill and the Central Acceptance Facility.

The Central Acceptance Facility’s HHW site, located at 201 West Warren Road in Cockeysville, will accept residential paint and hazardous materials for drop-off year-round (please note that some computer map programs will inaccurately show this address on the east side of York Road). The facility is open Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For more information about the County’s trash and recycling program, including details about the types of HHW accepted at the Cockeysville facility, residents should visit the Bureau of Solid Waste Management’s web site or call 410-887-2000.
