Free to Hurst Residents

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.
