Clean Sweep Program 

Clean Sweep events are offered several times throughout the year, and provide residents with an opportunity to bring their collections of hazardous materials to a central location for proper disposal.

WRR Environmental Services executes these events three times per year.

What are Household Hazardous Products?

There are four basic categories of Household Hazardous Wastes

  • Toxic: materials that can make you sick or kill you
  • Ignitable or flammable: materials that can burst into flame at temperatures below 140 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Corrosive: strong acids and bases that can eat through steel and other materials
  • Reactive: chemicals that are violently unstable at room temperature, that react violently with water, or when mixed with air at room temperature give off toxic vapors
