Household Hazardous Waste ("HHW") - Many common household products are hazardous. If these products are handled or disposed of incorrectly, they can pose a threat to human health, animals and the environment. When these products are discarded, they become "household hazardous waste." In California, it is illegal to dispose of household hazardous waste in the trash, down the drain, or by abandonment. Household hazardous waste needs to be disposed of through a Household Hazardous Waste Program. Click HERE for more info.
Universal Waste ("uWaste") - Universal waste comes primarily from consumer products containing mercury, lead, cadmium and other substances that are hazardous to human health and the environment.

Sharps Program - Home-generated needles and other sharps thrown into household waste present a great risk to sanitation and sewage treatment workers, janitors, housekeepers, children – even pets. Some state governments are setting guidelines about needle waste disposal. California, for example, now prohibits disposal of needles in regular household waste. Residents can conveniently and responsibly dispose of needles, lancets, and other sharps from homes with mail back containers in three easy steps:
Step 1: Residents call WRG customer service at 888-467-7600 to request a free Sharps Kit which includes a container, a pre-paid postage label and a form. WRG will deliver it to your home the following week.
Step 2: Residents fill up the container with Sharps.
Step 3: Residents mail the container back for safe disposal by using the pre-paid postage label provided and sign a form included in the side pocket of the kit.
Residents will receive one free Sharps Mail-Back container per year, with a second and third kit available for $5.00 co-pay. Limit one at a time.
