How do I dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW)?

The Household Hazardous Waste collection event is held once a year at the City Service Center. Items accepted are acids, aerosol cans, all batteries, antifreeze, brake fluid, craft chemicals, degreasers, drain cleaners, fertilizer, fluorescent lights, herbicides, household chemicals, motor oil, paints/stains, paint thinner, pest strips, pesticides, pharmaceutical, photo chemicals, pool chemicals, oil filters, solvents, transmission fluid and varnishes. There is no charge for this service, however, proof of residency will be required (i.e. photo ID and recent water bill). Please contact the Environmental Health Specialist at 817-426-9848 for more information concerning collection events or other needs.

You may also take your Household Hazardous Waste to the Environmental Collection Center (ECC) in Fort Worth. The ECC is open Thursday and Fridays from 11a-7p and Saturdays from 9a-3p. It is located at 6400 Bridge St, Fort Worth. For directions, call 817-392-EASY (3279). There is no fee, however, residents must take a City of Burleson water or solid waste bill as proof of residency.
