How can we help keep our water clean?

You can help protect all of our groundwater supplies by disposing of harmful household products and other toxic chemicals in the proper manner. Household hazardous waste includes cleaners, glues, soaps, pesticides, paints, fertilizers, medicines, chrome solutions, motor oil, and batteries. These waste materials should never be dumped down the drain, in the trash, or on the ground. Instead they should be taken to a hazardous waste collection or recycling center. Whenever possible, cutting down on the use of toxic household products by switching to safer alternatives is encouraged.

Household hazardous waste should be taken to the San Bernardino County Fire Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility at 2824 East “W” Street (located at the former Norton Air Force Base). It is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on household hazardous waste, call 1-800-645-9228.

Join us in preserving our water resources by using water resources wisely and efficiently. This will ensure a long-term supply of clean, safe water. Remember, preventing water contamination is less expensive than developing new treatment methods.
