Household Hazardous Waste
The Victorville Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center is located on Loves Lane behind the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds off of Desert Knoll Drive and 7th Street in Victorville. The HHW is open Wednesdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Click here for the flier.
Many items are hazardous to the environment and therefore cannot be placed in the regular trash or recycle dumpsters or carts. Grease, paint, pesticides, solvents, motor oil and filters, batteries, medicines, sharps, and fluorescent tubes all must be properly disposed of at a Household Hazardous Waste Center (HHW). Victor Valley RESIDENTS (NO business materials) can use ANY Household Hazardous Waste Center in ANY San Bernardino County city for FREE and they will accept the following items:
- Used motor oil and filter recycling
- E-waste recycling (TVs, Computers, etc.)
- Fluorescent lights and ballasts
- Household batteries and vehicle batteries
- Sharps* and medicine disposal
- Paint disposal
- Cooking oil
*SHARPS Approved Containers
Sharps can only be accepted in an approved sharps container. The Hazardous Waste Center has a limited supply of sharps containers, and due to supply chain shortages, we cannot guarantee a container will be available.
You can 'MAKE YOUR OWN' approved sharps container, though. It's easy! For instructions on how to make your own approved sharps container from household items, click this link: Sharps Container Instructions Free adhesive labels are available at the HHW Center, while supplies last.
Do you have hazardous waste from your small business?
The Household Hazardous Waste Centers are for RESIDENTIAL waste only. Businesses that generate up to 27 gallons or 220 lbs. per month of hazardous waste or 2.2 lbs. of extremely hazardous waste per month are called Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators or CESQGs. For more information on the CESQG program and the types of waste accepted, contact the San Bernardino County Fire Department at (909) 382-5401.
