Home chemical products can be dangerous if not properly used, stored or disposed. When they're no longer needed, they're referred to as "Household Hazardous Waste" or HHW for short.
Gas containers can be emptied and returned at the following sites ONLY:
N. Jog Road in WPB ORS. SR 7 in west Delray Beach
Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
Containers of gas can be dropped off at our other sites. However, they cannot be emptied and returned to you.
CONCERNS WITH HHW
Anywhere along the disposal route -- from your curb to our facilities -- chemicals can present a threat to the public, solid waste workers and the environment if not disposed of properly. Residents are encouraged to separate HHW from their household garbage and dispose of it in an appropriate manner.
WHERE CAN I TAKE HHW?

Other Options Many big box stores and larger retail chains accept certain materials, like rechargeable batteries, CFLs, used oil, cell phones and electronics. Use the Where to Recycle feature on the Earth 911 website to find additional sites near you.
