Household Hazardous Waste

Eco-Depot is a free service for properly disposing of household hazardous waste from RI households (for non-residential hazardous waste disposal click here). Household hazardous waste is anything labeled with a skull and crossbones, or words like 'toxic', 'poison', 'flammable', 'combustible', etc. Examples include mercury devices, automotive fluids, fertilizers, pesticides, pool chemicals, and polishes. Download a brochure with a list of the 'usual suspects' here.

The following hazardous waste items also have disposal options in addition to Eco-Depot that may be more convenient for you. All are accepted at Eco-Depot events as well.

Please use the form below to make an appointment for an Eco-Depot collection. Appointments are made to prevent everyone from showing up at once, which reduces wait time in line. We try to service 25 cars every 15 minutes—you won’t even need to get out of your vehicle. You can view the entire schedule in the “Request Date” drop-down menu below, or download it here. You can also download an inventory form and directions to all Eco-Depot events.
