The Reusable Household Product Program collects products that are brought to the Citizen Collection Stations in their original containers and are in good, usable condition. Products are available to any collection station customer who would like to reuse them. The purpose of the program is to use up products as intended in order to reduce the amount of household hazardous waste that has to be specially disposed of throughout the year.
Products are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and vary by location. There is a limit of ten products per customer. An I.D. and signature are required for anyone picking up household products.
