Water Quality District - Hazardous Waste
What Makes It Hazardous?
Driveway sealer may be water-based or oil-based. Oil-based sealers contain flammable chemicals and must be cleaned up with solvents. Water/latex-based sealers are typically easier to work with, and clean up with soap and water. However, latex-based products freeze if not properly stored, thus creating a waste product.
If you can’t use or store your latex sealer before it freezes, give it to someone who can.
- Water-based sealer can be dried out and disposed with lid off, in regular trash.
- Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event: If you can't use it up, Haz Waste Days, in September, accepts driveway sealers.
