Household Hazardous Waste: 2015 Collection Options

Cleaning out your home is a great opportunity to start the New Year off on a good note. After your cleaning is completed you will probably have some household items that you need to dispose of. The cities of Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Tamarac, Fort Lauderdale, and Pompano Beach have established a cooperative agreement that will allow city residents several opportunities to dispose the full range of materials at special one-day events throughout the year.

Items that will be accepted include:waste image

  • Motor Oil

  • Other hazardous household items

Collection days will be the first Saturday of every month from 8AM to 5PM. Coral Springs residents may drop off these items at the Waste Transfer Station, located at the west end of Wiles Road at NW 126 Ave. Two forms of ID are required to prove residency (i.e. driver’s license, bill, or registration, etc.).
