Time for Fall Cleaning ~ This Saturday at Dragon Stadium

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.
