HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS MATERIALS COLLECTION DAY

Every year the Deer Park LEPC hosts a "Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day" for Deer Park area residents.  The Collection Day is scheduled on a Saturday, often in April in celebration of "Earth Day" activities.  The 2008 Collection Day will be scheduled this fall.  

Provided as a free public service to area residents, the Deer Park LEPC pays for all collection, recycling and disposal costs which total $15,000 per year.

2007 COLLECTION DAY

The 2007 Collection Day was conducted on Saturday, April 28, 2007 at the City of Deer Park's Underwood Transfer Station located at 610 Underwood Road in Deer Park.  

The annual Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day is an opportunity for Deer Park and La Porte area residents to collect and get rid of their old paints, antifreeze, used oil and oil filters, auto batteries, old tires, pesticides, swimming pool chemicals, household cleaning products, computers, cell phones and electronic products, and other household hazardous materials.

You can bring these products to the Underwood Transfer Station where LEPC and industry volunteers will remove, recycle, or safely dispose of them.  There is NO COST for area residents to dispose of these products at the Collection Day Site.
