Grants to New York agencies, municipalities, districts, and Native American entities to provide residents with alternative means of disposing of or recycling eligible types of waste. Funding may be used for collection programs, events, and facilities necessary for hazardous waste collection.

Eligible projects can include reasonable municipal costs related to operating household hazardous waste collection programs or operating a household hazardous waste collection and storage facility or mobile collection facility and associated educational and promotional expenses.  It is not necessary that all types of household hazardous waste be collected for the collection program to be eligible.

Eligible costs include the following, to the extent that they are necessary for program operation:

  1. Costs for one or more contractor(s) to accept, segregate, prepare for shipment, or transport household hazardous waste that is brought to the collection event or facility.
  2. Costs for the actual recycling, treatment, or disposal of collected household hazardous wastes.
  3. Costs for publicity, promotion, and public education directly related to operating a household hazardous waste collection program.

Generally, categories of HHW potentially eligible for up to 50% reimbursement may include: Pesticides, corrosives, pool chemicals, driveway sealers, hazardous paints and stains, polishes and waxes, adhesives, solvents, hazardous cleaning products, antifreeze, vehicle fluids, fluorescent light tubes, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and ballasts, photography chemicals, products containing mercury (excluding thermostats), and propane gas cylinders that still contain propane.
