Do you know that the average US household produces more than 20 pounds of household hazardous waste a year? To help dispose of this waste as environmentally friendly as possible, the City has begun hosting household hazardous waste collection events twice a year.
For household hazardous waste items (unbroken Compact Fluorescent light bulbs, paint cans, pesticides, pool chemicals, etc.) residents are encouraged to take items the Miami-Dade County Home Chemical Collection Centers at the following addresses:
West-Dade: 8831 NW 58th Street
South-Dade: 23707 SW 97th Ave
The hours of operations for both locations are Wednesday-Sunday from 9am-5pm.
Please note: The City recommends calling before going to ensure the collection centers are open and are currently accepting hazardous waste. The main number to the Miami-Dade Solid Waste Department is (305) 514-6666
