How to dispose of Household Hazardous Waste in Farmington, Utah

Household Hazardous Wastes are common in our homes and workplace but must be carefully handled and disposed to ensure that unintended circumstances do not occur.

Chemicals such as cleaners, cosmetics, medicine, and automotive fluids are just a few examples of these wastes that must be properly handled. Batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, and thermometers are some of the objects that should be carefully disposed of to avoid dangerous exposure to chemicals contained within the products.

Used Motor Oil can be taken to the Farmington City Public Works building located at 720 West 100 North in Farmington on weekdays between the hours of 8 am-noon and 1 pm- 3:30 pm.

Other Hazardous Waste can be taken to Wasatch Integrated’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility.  This facility is located at the Davis Landfill and accepts E-WASTE, paint, varnish, pesticides, lawn care products, aerosols, paint thinner, antifreeze, motor oil, diesel, gasoline, cleaning items, automotive products, rechargeable and lead acid batteries, etc. in household quantities. Click on the e-waste link above for important e-waste disposal information. There is no charge for drop off of household hazardous waste. The Household Hazardous Waste Facility is located at the landfill and open during landfill operating hours, Monday through Saturday. For additional information call (801) 614-5600.   Click button above for More Household Hazardous Waste information. The facility incorporates two solar panels and a windmill. The solar panels produce approximately 7,363-kilowatt hours of energy every year and the windmill produces approximately 4440-kilowatt hours of energy each year (with a wind speed average of 12 mph). The facility is heated using methane collected from the landfill. The facility is open during landfill hours.

If you see someone dumping material down the storm drain or into the gutter, or in case of hazardous material spill, you can report the illicit discharge on the 24-hour hotline at 801-451-4150, Davis County Dispatch.
