[ARCHIVED] SWA’s March Household Hazardous Waste Tip

March 2020 Haz Materials - Spring Cleaning

Save your shelf this spring by cleaning out home hazards from sheds, garages and under sinks! Cleaners, paints, pesticides and automotive products have no place in the regular trash or down storm drains where they can expose people, pets and our environment to harm. 

Instead, Palm Beach County residents can dispose of their unwanted chemicals at any of the SWA’s seven convenient drop-off locations for FREE! 

The SWA’s locations include (from north county to south county):

Commercial quantities of items that contain mercury may require special disposal. Call 561-687-1100 for details on recycling mercury and mercury containing devices from your business. 

In the last fiscal year, Palm Beach County residents recycled more than 42,400 pounds of cleaning solutions. Each year, the SWA’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers either recycle or safely dispose of 4.2M pounds of household hazardous wastes. Remember, pollution prevention starts at home.

A full list of household hazardous wastes can be found at or call 561-697-2700 or 866-SWA-INFO (toll-free) to learn more about the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers.
