Household Hazardous Waste Site changes operating hours
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Beginning July 12, the Solid Waste Management Department will change operating hours for the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Drop-off Center in order to better serve the San Antonio community and provide operating hours that are more convenient.
The facility will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays and from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays. The HHW Drop-off Center provides a safe environment for residents to dispose of household items such as paint, motor oil, antifreeze, pool chemicals, batteries and automobile tires.
Most household materials labeled "toxic", "corrosive" or "flammable" can be brought to the HHW Drop-Off Center. Materials should be kept in their original containers and transported in a car or truck. If containers are deteriorated or leaking, transfer materials to a safe container and label the new container to correctly identify the contents. This service is only for San Antonio environmental fee ratepayers. A copy of a CPS Energy bill must be brought to the HHW Drop-off Center for verification.
Commercial and biomedical waste is not accepted. For more information on the new hours or for a complete list of items that are accepted at the HHW, visit www.sanantonio.gov/swmd/EMD/HHW.asp or call 207-6400.
