Hazardous materials may be disposed of at the Environmental Collection Center in Fort Worth. Citizens with a Hurst address on their driver’s license or a current water bill may take those hard-to get-rid-of items such as aerosol cans, old paint, batteries, and used motor oil to the ECC and leave them with a highly trained professional staff for proper disposal or reuse, free of charge.
The City is charged per disposal, whether it is a can of paint or 50 cans. As a result, we ask that you collect several items within your household or with your neighbors to dispose of at the Collection Center.

For your safety and to make the collection of materials less costly and more efficient, we ask that:
- If a product is still usable, try to give it to someone who can use it.
- Sort liquid paint by type (i.e. latex, oil based, lead based).
- Please keep chemicals in their original containers. Place broken or leaking containers inside a second container of like material (for example, glass for corrosives, metal for flammables).
- If a container has no label and its contents are know, please place a label on the container clearly stating the contents.
- Do not transport chemicals in the passenger compartment of your vehicle. Put them in the trunk.
- Mutually collect hazardous materials with your neighbors to reduce trips to the ECC.
