Household Hazardous Waste

Hazardous Waste Flyer (1)

Household Hazardous Waste HHW includes things like paint, gasoline, yard chemicals, and oils. You will find these items under the kitchen sink or stored in the garage. It is illegal to dispose of some of these items in the trash, pour them down the sink or dump them into storm drains. You can dispose of these and other  items year round at the City of Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center (ECC).  Proof of residence (current water bill or valid driver’s license) is required to use the ECC. 

The ECC is for residential waste disposal and recycling only. Commercial, business or industrial waste cannot be accepted under Texas regulations.

Another option for City of Saginaw residents to dispose of HHW is the annual City of Saginaw Spring Clean-Up day that takes place in April each year.
