The City of Fort Lauderdale offers several opportunities throughout the year for you to bring virtually any form of household hazardous waste (HHW) and dispose of it for free.You will see these events advertised here on our website, on your utility bill and in our neighborhood newsletter Currents. You can also call our 24-hour Customer Service Hotline at 954-828-8000 to get information about drop events.
Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) are those wastes produced in our households* that are hazardous in nature, but are not regulated as hazardous waste, under federal and state laws. Each person in Pennsylvania produces an average of four pounds of HHW each year or about 25,000 tons/yr. statewide. Included are such items as old paints and paint related products, pesticides, pool chemicals, drain cleaners, and degreasers and other car care products. Such consumer waste products, if carelessly managed can, and frequently do, create environmental and public health hazards.
