The City of Coral Springs and Broward County are partnering to host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Sunday, January 30 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held in the 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.
