Did you know it can be unsafe to dispose household hazardous waste in with your everyday garbage.
Many can cause serious injury to employees who pick up your garbage. Whenever possible avoid purchasing such items because of the disposal liabilities, costs, and environmental dangers. If you must purchase, buy in quantities for immediate use-only enough for what you need. Please explore alternative products that are environmentally friendly / safer.
You must be a Lockhart City Resident to participate in the event.
Bring Utility Bill or other proof of residence.
SAFETY TIPS! (For Collection Day)
• Bring products in the original containers — Do not mix products!
• Make sure containers are properly sealed and labeled correctly.
• If the container leaks, pack in larger container and use absorbents, such as
cat litter, to soak up leaks.
• If you do not know what it is, mark it “unknown.”
• If possible, place materials in cardboard boxes—boxes with dividers make for good
packaging.
• Place materials in areas away from drivers and passengers.
