SWA’s May Household Hazardous Waste Tip

Hurricane season is starts June 1, and many of our Palm Beach County neighbors are making sure they are prepared. As you replace your old hurricane supplies, keep in mind that some items may not be placed in the garbage, but instead, should be brought to one of the SWA’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers.


Supplies requiring special disposal include: 

  • gasoline and used oil from generators 
  • old propane tanks
  • rechargeable batteries from electronics or flashlights

These items (and other home hazards) can be dropped off for free by Palm Beach County residents to any of the centers listed below, where they will be recycled or disposed of properly.


Commercial interests should call 561-687-1100 for disposal options.

A complete list of hazardous home products is available online.

Remember, pollution prevention starts at home. Visit SWA.org/HCRC or call 561-697-2700 or 866-SWA-INFO (toll-free) to learn more about the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers.
