Spring is a great time to clean house and also a good time to get rid of toxic paints, chemicals, and other hazardous materials that need special handling. The City of Southlake is again partnering with Fort Worth Environmental to provide an easy way for residents to dispose of household hazardous waste.
Residents can bring items to the Mobile Crud Cruiser at 1085 S. Kimball Ave. (Dragon Stadium) Saturday, April 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., or until the trucks are full.
Drivers will want to enter on the south side of Dragon Stadium and follow the orange cones. Look for members of the Southlake Fire Department and volunteers who will help you navigate to the right location. Items that will be accepted: automotive fluids, batteries, cleaners & chemicals, cooking oil, lawn/garden/pool chemicals, light bulbs, paint & painting supplies. Reminder: If you have water based or latex paint you can completely dry out the paint and place it in your regular household trash.
Texas Recovery Systems will also be onsite to take your old electronics. You can dispose of e-waste items including: CD/DVD drives, cell phones, computers (hard drives, monitors, laptops, cables etc.) printers, ink cartridges, and keyboards. Due to the cost to the vendor for the handling and safe processing of tube type monitors there will be a charge of $10.00 per unit for all tube type monitors that are recycled at this event. There will be no charge for LCD or flat screen monitors. (NO TELEVISIONS)
Document shredding will also be available. Again, residents should bring their items to Dragon Stadium (enter from the south side of the stadium) and look for our DPS volunteers and staff who will be on hand to guide drivers to the appropriate (separate) lines to drop off their disposable items. It’s a fast and convenient way for our residents to drop off any old materials that they want to dispose of in one location. *Remember, it will be on a first come, first serve basis until the trucks are full.
Please bring your driver’s license or current water bill for proof of residency.
