Clean Sweep Guidelines
- Farms & households may bring any amount of hazardous waste for free disposal.
- Small Business & Schools must contact Veolia with completed inventory list.
- Materials should be properly identified with their original labels.
- DO NOT MIX materials together. Doing so can be extremely dangerous!
- Pack materials for your safety. Place materials in a cardboard box lined with a plastic bag. Separate each product with a folded newspaper.
- If a container is leaking, put it into a secondary leak-proof container.
- Pack containers in the trunk of your vehicle, away from the driver, passengers and pets.
- Unknown materials can be brought in, but Rich-land County and its hazardous waste disposal contractor reserve the right to refuse any material.
- Latex paint is non-hazardous, but it must be solidified before throwing it away. It’s easy to dry out: If you have a small amount, simply remove the lid and allow it to dry outside. Mix larger amounts with cat litter or a paint drying product sold at hardware stores. Never dispose of liquid paint in your trash.
- Pharmaceuticals, IVs, and needles will not be accepted. Residents can drop off unwanted medications at the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.
- Not Accepted Items: mattresses, furniture, explosives, detonators, blasting caps, radioactive materials including smoke alarms, infectious and biological waste, compressed gas cylinders, asbestos, demolition materials, recyclables, and yard and household waste.
- NEVER LEAVE HAZARDOUS WASTES AT ANY LOCATION. ABANDONING HAZARDOUS WASTES, EVEN FROM HOUSEHOLDS, IS A STATE & FEDERAL OFFENSE
