Green Aquia volunteers will be available to assist with household hazardous waste collection in the community and will transport the hazardous household waste to Fredericksburg for environmentally sound disposal.
Green Aquia will accept the following for pickup (this list may differ from Stafford County’s): Gasoline, oil, paint thinner, wood polish, oil-based paint, single-use grocery bags, fluorescent light bulbs, lead-acid and rechargeable batteries, cooking oils, pesticides and other household chemicals. E-waste including cell phones, laptops, ipods, printer cartridges, computer cables.
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED: Latex/water-based paints, medical waste, bio-hazards, explosives/ammunition, microwaves, smoke detectors, cylinders larger than 20 lbs and televisions/CRT monitors.
NEW GUIDANCE: Latex paint is not accepted as it is not a hazardous waste. Please dry the paint out and then dispose of it with your regular household trash.
GREEN AQUIA’S RE-USE PROGRAM: If you have items you are confident are serviceable, we will place these items in our re-use program. This includes household cleaning supplies, automotive and gardening supplies and any type of paint.
