Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) are chemicals which could cause harm to
the environment if they are thrown into your garbage roll cart, poured
down the drain or storm sewer, illegally dumped, or stored incorrectly.
When you are finished using these types of products around your home,
please take them to the
Dallas County Home Chemical Collection Center for reuse or proper
disposal. Several hardware stores and auto parts retailers will accept
fluorescent bulbs or batteries.
Both services are free to Dallas residents.
Take a driver's license and a recent utility bill stub to prove residency.
