Door-to-Door Household Hazardous Waste Program for Cupertino
Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW), such as paint, pool chemicals, pesticides and household cleaning solvents, are not accepted in any landfill. These materials should NOT be placed in the trash, recycling or compost or poured down the drain. There is, however, a convenient way to dispose of these and other common household wastes in Cupertino through our partnership with the Waste Management At-Your-Door Collection Program (WM).
How it works
Residents call Waste Management at 800.449.7587 and schedule an appointment. A collection kit containing a 14-gallon plastic bag, tip tie, and instructions will then be mailed out in advance of the collection date. The bag is then loaded with the waste, sealed with the zip tie, and placed on the front porch by 7 a.m. on the morning of the collection appointment. Waste Management collection staff will then collect and safely dispose of the material. This program is available to all residents of Cupertino.
