Fall 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. On Saturday, October 18, 2014 residents can bring items to the Mobile Crud Cruiser at 1085 S. Kimball Ave. (Dragon Stadium) from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. or until full. The entry to the event is on the south side of the stadium.  crud lines

Items that will be accepted: Automotive fluids, batteries, cleaners & chemicals, cooking oil, lawn/garden/pool chemicals, light bulbs, paint & painting supplies. 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. (NO TELEVISIONS) Document shredding will also be available.

Residents should bring their items to Dragon Stadium and look for our DPS volunteers and staff. They will be on hand to guide drivers to the appropriate (separate) lines to drop off their disposable items. The entry for all disposals will be on the south side of the stadium. 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. If you would like additional information on all of the items that will be accepted for the Crud Cruiser event please visit the Fort Worth Environmental website http://bit.ly/1ly67d6 or contact Renni Burt at 817-748-8349. If you are unable to make it out to see us on October 18th check our website after January 2nd to see the event dates for 2015.

Another Successful Crud Cruiser Event!

The City of Southlake held its second Crud Cruiser event for the year recently and it was big success!  The Citywide event was held on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at Carroll ISD’s Dragon Stadium on Kimball Avenue. Hundreds of residents turned out to bring household waste items to the Crud Cruiser for disposal.  Volunteers collected everything from old batteries, aerosol sprays, lawn and pool chemicals, to paint and painting supplies. More than 5200 lbs. of household waste items were collected.

The event provides residents with a one-stop, drive-through location to drop off household waste items, electronic recycling and document shredding.  Nearly 1300 lbs. of paper were shredded. We also partnered with Goodwill Services and accepted a large amount of electronics including old cell phones, computers and other items for recycling.

The City of Southlake DPS is happy to provide an environmentally friendly location for its residents to dispose of these items especially hazardous household waste products in a safe, hassle-free and responsible way.  We are so grateful to our wonderful Southlake volunteers who were on hand to assist residents and the Department of Public Safety as they collected items for disposal.

A special “Thank you” to Cindy Robinson (pictured below in the dark shirt) for the photos she took at our Crud Cruiser event and to all of our wonderful Southlake volunteeers.
