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 next Household Hazardous Waste event will be held in Dutch Branch Park on Saturday, August 22, 2020 and will run from 9:00am-11:00am (or until the collection trailer is full). Please bring proof of Benbrook residency (water bill or driver’s license).
Benbrook residents also have the option to take items directly to the:
