Household hazardous wastes can include auto fluids, household cleaners, unused fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals that have the potential to be harmful. Paints, thinners, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries, and photo and pool chemicals also fall into this category. HHW materials should not be placed in with garbage, poured down a sink, poured out in the street, or dumped off the side of the road. These actions can cause harm to the person or wildlife that comes in contact with those materials. Follow this link to find out how to dispose of paint at your home!
In addition to these products, an electronics recycler will be on site to collect used computer equipment and other electronics from residents. Electronic equipment should be kept out of our landfills because of the metals and other potential pollutants contained in the equipment.
If you can not make this collection day, you may dispose of these products year round at the Environmental Collection Center, located at 6400 Bridge St., Fort Worth, TX 76112. Call ahead for hours and to make sure your material will be taken at 817-392-3279. You must bring proof (Drivers License or Utility Bill) that you are a Mansfield resident for this free disposal method.Visit Event Website for More Info
