Household hazardous waste

Fargo residents can bring household hazardous waste to our facility year-round at no charge during regular business hours. Household hazardous waste (HHW) includes items labeled danger, toxic, poisonous, corrosive or flammable such as paints, thinners, stains, varnish, drain and oven cleaners, poisons, automotive fluids, weed and insect killer, fluorescent light bulbs and ballasts, etc. These materials (in household quantities), among others, are accepted at the city's permanent HHW facility.

The HHW facility is available to all Cass County and Valley City residents.  Please call with questions. 

The HHW facility also accepts one computer set (tower, monitor and accessories) as well as one television per resident, per month.

The City of Fargo does not pick-up electronics or household hazardous waste products during Cleanup Week.

The HHW building is located at 606 - 43 1/2 St. N. in Fargo.  The facility is just east of the landfill and compost site, on the south side of 7th Ave.  The HHW facility can be reached at (701) 281-8915.
