Household Hazardous Waste

The City's Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program provides Chino residents and residents of San Bernardino County with a safe and convenient disposal option for common household products containing chemicals. These chemicals can pollute our air, property and drinking water, as well as potentially harm children, pets and local wildlife. Click here for flyer.

Thousands of needles are dangerously thrown into the trash every day. Disposing of needles/syringes and lancets pose a serious health risk to sanitation workers, children, neighbors, pets and the community. Used needles and lancets are dangerous because they can injure people and spread diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis. In response to the potential hazard, the City of Chino and Waste Management have implemented a convenient SHARPS mail back disposal program. 

SHARPS Disposal by Mail System consists of:

1. Specifically designed SHARPS container 
2. Pre-paid shipping box 
3. Instructions for use 

To participate in the program, please call Waste Management at 
(800) 423-9986 to order your kit. The first container is free, all others have a $5 co-pay.
