On Oct. 19, Comal County officials will provide a household hazardous waste drop-off location for county residents at New Braunfels City Hall, 550 Landa St., New Braunfels.
Residents can drop off hazardous waste items, such as paint, gasoline, bleach and insecticides, from 8 a.m.-noon by entering the City Hall parking lot from Laurel Lane and dropping off their materials in the designated spot.
County residency will be verified using state-issued identification featuring a current address—for instance, a Texas driver’s license. County officials have also encouraged residents not to mix hazardous items and not to transport them in the trunk of a car or in a truck bed.
Liquid waste items for drop-off cannot exceed 5 gallons in volume and, if possible, should be sealed and labeled in their original containers. Prohibited items include fireworks and explosives, compressed natural gas cylinders, ammunition, medical waste, radioactive materials, tires, regular trash and electronics.
