The City of Coral Springs and Broward County are partnering to host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Sunday, January 31 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held in the rear parking lot at City Hall South, 9530 West Sample Road.
City and County residents are encouraged to bring their old paint, used motor oil, batteries, household cleaning supplies and other hazardous wastes to the collection site for proper disposal. Disposing of harsh chemicals and household wastes by professionals helps protect the environment.
Past household hazardous waste collection events in the City of Coral Springs have resulted in the disposal of 3,800 gallons of old paint, 440 gallons of used motor oil, and 6,300 pounds of flammables. Almost 900 Broward County residents participated in previous collection days, 681 of which were Coral Springs residents.
Other items accepted at Household Hazardous Waste Collection include: solvents, pesticides, lawn and pool chemicals, propane tanks, compact fluorescent light bulbs, tires (a maximum of four per person), fire extinguishers, car batteries, flares, mercury thermometers, televisions, computers, monitors, keyboards, mouses, printers, fax machines, cell phones, and rechargeable batteries.
