Household Hazardous Waste Collection Saturday, Oct. 9
The Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency’s (BVSWMA) fall Household Hazardous Waste Collection is Saturday, Oct. 9 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University Services Building in College Station, which is located just past Veteran's Park on Hwy. 30 East.
The program offers Brazos Valley residents a safe, economical way to dispose of household items that are flammable, reactive, corrosive or toxic. Pharmaceuticals, solvents, pesticides, caustic cleaners, used motor oil, batteries, oil, paint and even computers are examples of the types of waste that will be accepted at no charge.
Items that will not be accepted include household garbage, 55-gallon drums, ammunition, explosives and tires.
For a complete list of acceptable items, visit this link: HHW Accepted Items or call the Household Hazardous Waste hotline at 979.764.3809.
HHW collection events are held twice each year to encourage area residents to collect, recycle and dispose of household hazardous waste products and keep those wastes out of the landfill.
The spring Household Hazardous Waste Collection is scheduled for April 23.
