Did you know?
The average household generates 20 pounds of hazardous waste each year from household cleaners and chemicals?
Most homes have some old household products in their cabinets. You probably throw the containers away without giving it a second thought. They might be out of the house, but that doesn’t mean they won’t come back to haunt you.
Chemicals found in items like weed killers, paint thinners and furniture polish taint the water supply, pollute the environment and are hazardous to humans, fish and wildlife. Besides, many toxic substances can’t be rendered harmless by ordinary disposal and sewage treatment methods.
Instead of trashing everything or pouring it down the drain (which is highly illegal by the way), store unwanted products in a safe place until the next Hazardous Waste Collection Day.
What to do with your Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
This HHW collection and disposal program is part of Denton County’s ongoing commitment to improve the environment in Denton County and to assist residents in their desire to safely dispose of HHW. As part of Denton County Storm Water Management Program, Denton County has entered into a contract with Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) to assist the residents in collecting and disposing of their HHW.
Residents need to pick up a voucher at Denton County Public Works to reserve a spot at one of the collection events shown in this flyer. The vouchers are at No Cost to the residents and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Please do not bring any HHW to Public Works because we are not able to accept the waste. The residents will then need to bring the accepted materials to the chosen event for proper disposal.
