Don’t just dump it

Butte County residents reminded to properly dispose of haz-mat

Each week, the Butte Regional Household Hazardous Waste Facility (1101 Marauder St.) offers county residents two opportunities to dispose of household hazardous waste for free—on Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All you need is a utility bill to verify county residence. The facility accepts:

• antifreeze, motor oil, gasoline and oil filters

• pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers

• aerosols, bleaches, solvents and pool chemicals

• televisions and electronic waste

The facility does not accept ammunition, explosives, radioactive waste, garbage or appliances. Go to for a complete list of accepted materials, or call (866) 429-2288.
