Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
Accepted items include computers, printers, scanners, fax machines, cell phones, televisions, and desktop appliances with a cord. Large appliances (i.e., washers and dryers) and any Freon-containing items are collected through the Large Item collection program.
The collection programs consists of mobile collection sites in Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Eagle, and the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility at the Ada County Hidden Hollow Sanitary Landfill. The mobile collection sites are open to residents within the limits of their respective cities, while any Ada County resident can use the facility at the landfill.
As a reminder, space is limited on the mobile collection trucks and we cannot accept large quantities of items from individual households. We CAN accept up to three computer monitors, two televisions (27 inches in size or smaller), or three 2' x2' servers per household per collection day.
Televisions larger than 27 inches in size and console televisions (i.e. televisions in a wood cabinet) must be taken to the Ada County Landfill, Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. You will be directed to offload your television in an area near the top of the landfill: this area is for televisions ONLY; no other household hazardous waste can be left. Off-loading assistance is ONLY available on Fridays and Saturdays when the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Facility is open.
Please note: Boise City does not have a curbside pickup service for analog televisions (old-style) that contain a cathode ray tube unless the resident is homebound and meets the Homebound Program criteria. Residents that do not meet the homebound criteria but can not physically handle or lack the appropriate-sized vehicle to haul their televisions are encouraged to ask family, friends, and neighbors for assistance or call these for-hire companies:
