Household Hazardous Waste Facility

Products, such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides can contain hazardous ingredients and require special care for disposal and must not go into the regular garbage.  Carlton County residents may bring their household hazardous waste, free of charge, during facility hours.
