Household Hazardous Waste Event


Area residents are invited to participate in the spring household hazardous waste collection event on Saturday, April 24, from 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Texas A&M University General Services Building parking lot.

The entrance is on Harvey Road east of Veterans Park and Athletic Complex.

You can also donate new or used children's books to Books and a Blanket

Accepted items include paints, thinners, batteries, computers, electronics, old medications, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, motor oil, gasoline, antifreeze, and more. Items not accepted are 55-gallon drums, ammunition and firearms, appliances with Freon, biomedical or radioactive wastes, household garbage, large copiers and printers, tires, and commercially generated waste.

Please bring your household materials in the original containers with labels intact — and don’t mix products. You should also label materials that aren’t in the original packages and secure products so they won’t tip or leak. Products should be in the trunk or bed of your vehicle, not in the passenger area.

You must stay in your vehicle while staff members unload your items.
