Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is not allowed in any Cal-Waste equipment.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is defined as a waste with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment.  Some examples of HHW are:


  • Batteries
  • Fluorescent light bulbs
  • Lighter fluid
  • Anything containing mercury (thermometers and thermostats)
  • Nail polish/remover
  • Pool chemicals
  • Motor oil
  • Paints and solvents

Used Motor Oil & Cooking Oil Collection

Rancho Murieta residents can call Cal-Waste Customer Service to request a 1-gallon container for disposal of either used cooking oil, and separately, used motor oil.  Cooking oil and motor oil cannot be collected in the same container.  (In the instance that a resident would like a container for both cooking oil and motor oil, they would receive two containers.)  The container will be dropped off on the day of waste collection.  Residents can then fill the container at their leisure and set at the curb when the container is full on their next collection day.
