Household Hazardous Waste

To properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), the City of Benbrook offers collection events twice yearly; one event in the spring and one in the fall. These events are free for Benbrook residents.

Proof of Benbrook residency (driver’s license or water bill) is required.

Please note: Due to space constraints, paint drop-off at HHW events is limited to 30 gallons per household. Empty or dried-out paint containers can be placed in household trash.

Events scheduled for 2020:
The Household Hazardous Waste event scheduled for Saturday, August 22, 2020 has been CANCELLED by the Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center due to COVID-19. This event will not be scheduled until 2021. Thank you for your understanding.
