Williamson County will host a free household hazardous waste cleanup event March 16 at the Williamson County Expo Center in Taylor.

What you need to know

Williamson County Waste Management organizes household hazardous waste collection days twice a year. Local city recycling centers typically do not accept household hazardous wastes.

The cleanup event is scheduled from 9 a.m.-1 p.m., during which the following items will be accepted:
  • Acids
  • Aluminum
  • Antifreeze
  • Batteries
  • Brake and transmission fluid
  • Cleaning products
  • Lawn and garden chemicals
  • Lighter fluid
  • Paints, solvents and varnish
  • Pesticides and herbicides
To streamline drop-off, county officials ask that participants bring products in original containers, avoid mixing them, and label or group items. Containers should be properly sealed to prevent leaks.

Waste Management recommends transporting hazardous waste in vehicles' trunks. Volunteers will assist with unloading.

Each person may only go through the line once, and trailers longer than 16 feet, walkups, contractors and business refuse will not be accepted.

Participants are required to present proof of Williamson County residency, such as a driver’s license or billing statement.
