Every Spring and Fall, in cooperation with the local counties, the Virginia Cooperative Extension offices and MXI, NNSWCD holds Household Hazardous & Electronic Waste (HHW) Collection Events.

What is a HHW Event?
NNSWCD typically conducts 7 HHW Collection Events from March through October. These events collect used and unwanted household hazardous materials such as household chemicals. Each of the four local counties will host a HHW event in the Spring and in the Fall. Richmond County holds one event a year and that is during the Fall. Each event is strictly for residents and/or property owners of the county the event is being held.
These events are drive-thru, in which residents are instructed to remain in their vehicles and allow event staff to unload any items accepted for disposal. Items such as a gasoline, will be emptied from personal gas cans and returned upon request.

What are acceptable items to bring?
Spent fluorescent bulbs, Unwanted pesticides, Anti-freeze, Rechargeable batteries, Cleaners, Oil-based paint/stains, Old/contaminated fuels/petroleum products, Household chemicals,
Computers & laptops, Mainframes, Peripherals, Monitors, Flat screens, Telephones, Cell phones, Telephone systems, Fax machines, copiers, printers, TVs, Electronic circuit boards & components, Stereo equipment, Games, etc.
