County of Santa Clara Program:
Residents can schedule a free drop-off appointment for residential hazardous materials at HHW.org or by calling (408) 299-7300. In addition to two drop-off program sites in San Jose and San Martin where we accept all HHW materials, residents can take advantage of multiple drop-off locations for batteries, bulbs, motor oil, paint, medicines, sharps, E-waste, etc. throughout the County without scheduling an appointment. The location for these sites and additional information can be found at HHW.org.
