COLLEGE STATION, TX - The Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency (BVSWMA) will hold its fall Household Hazardous Waste Collection on Sat., Apr. 26, at the Texas A&M University Services Complex, this is a new location for the event.
Household hazardous waste, which includes most items not considered safe for the landfill, will be collected from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Residents from across the Brazos Valley can dispose of those items
free of charge.
The program offers participants a safe, economical way for residents to dispose of household items that are flammable, reactive, corrosive or toxic. Solvents, pesticides, caustic cleaners, used motor oil, batteries, oil, paint and even computers are examples of the different types of household hazardous waste that will be accepted.
Items that will not be accepted at this event include household garbage, 55-gallon drums, ammunition and explosives, tires and medical waste. Small businesses and municipal departments will not be able to dispose of wastes at this event.
HHW collection events are held twice a year to provide citizens of the Brazos Valley Region an environmentally sound program to collect, dispose of, recycle, and ultimately reduce the household hazardous waste products in the community, thereby keeping those wastes out of the landfill.
