[ARCHIVED] Household Hazardous Waste Tip - Proper Disposal of Old Hurricane Supplies


Hurry to properly dispose of old hurricane supplies!

Hurricane season is starts June 1, and we are asking the residents of Palm Springs to make sure they are prepared. As you replace your old hurricane supplies, keep in mind that some items may not be placed in the garbage, but instead, should be brought to one of the SWA’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers.

Supplies requiring special disposal include:

·         gasoline and used oil from generators

·         old propane tanks

·         rechargeable batteries from electronics or flashlights

These items (and other home hazards) can be dropped off for free by Palm Beach County residents. The closest center to Palm Springs is listed below, where items will be recycled or disposed of properly.
