Household Hazardous Waste

Print

Appomattox County participates with the Region 2000 Services Authority Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection program.  This program gives the residents an opportunity to properly dispose of materials which should not be put in the landfill or poured down the drain due to the toxicity or potential for pollution of groundwater.  This service is available to all residents (no businesses) free of charge.  In order to participate you are required to obtain a voucher from the Appomattox County Waste Management Department.  You will also be given a verification form.

Please call the Waste Management Department Office to order your voucher in advance of the collection day. There is no one available on the weekends to authorize a voucher.
