[ARCHIVED] Put some spring in your clean by recycling home chemicals

Save your shelf this spring by cleaning up old paint, batteries and fuels from sheds, garages and under sinks! Improper disposal of hazardous items can expose people, pets and our environment to harmful chemicals. The regular trash or being dumped down sewers or storm drains are not the places for cleaners, paints, pesticides and automotive products.

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

Commercial interests should call 561-687-1100 for disposal options.

A complete list of hazardous home products is available online.

Remember, pollution prevention starts at home. Visit or call 561-697-2700 or 866-SWA-INFO (toll-free) to learn more about the Solid Waste Authority’s Home Chemical and Recycling Facilities.
