Home Chemical & Recycling Center

The integrated system of facilities includes a Home Chemical & Recycling Center for household hazardous waste at each of our transfer stations. Usually when someone mentions hazardous waste, people don't think they have these items at home. However, we all have many chemicals in our homes. Home chemicals that need proper disposal include fluorescent light bulbs, rechargeable batteries, paint, pesticides and propane tanks. All of these items can be dropped off for free by Palm Beach County residents. Small businesses will have to pay for dropping off their hazardous waste. Each year we either recycle or safely dispose of about 4.25 million pounds of home chemicals. Find out more about home chemical disposal at swa.org/hcrc.
