Wondering how to dispose of household chemicals? The City is hosting a Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event on February 22.
On Saturday, February 22, 2020, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. the City of New Braunfels will host a household hazardous waste (HHW) drop-off for residents at 550 Landa St in New Braunfels, in the parking lot at City Hall. Participants must enter the parking lot from the Laurel Lane side. The line begins at the entrance on the Laurel Lane side of the parking lot, queues up Laurel Lane, and then goes left on Wood Road toward Clearfield Drive.
The HHW event is for City of New Braunfels residents. Participants must bring a state-issued photo I.D. with current address to verify residency. The last car in line at noon will be the last assisted.
Participants should not mix any items and transport them only in their car’s trunk or truck bed. When possible, items should be in their original, properly sealed, and labeled containers. The size of individual containers cannot exceed five gallons for liquid wastes. Trailer loads will not be accepted in order to keep wait times to a minimum.
Not all items are accepted. Prohibited items include ammunition, explosives, flares, fireworks, compressed natural gas cylinders, medical waste, pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, commercial waste, tires, trash, and electronics.
City residents can call (830) 221-4040 or visit the City’s website at www.nbtexas.org/hhw, for information about accepted items and event details. Residents can also sign up for the Solid Waste and Recycling list through the Keep Me Informed feature on the City’s website to receive notifications and details about HHW and other events.
