Contributions

The Home Toxics Center is a free service to residents but accepts contributions. These contributions go directly toward disposal costs. Contributions are important because tax dollars do not support our program. 

Donations can be made by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and Apple Pay virtually through PayPal using the button below. To make a cash or check donation, our waste specialists can provide an envelope to drop off at the front of the building. Click for PayPal Donations Opens in new window
