Household Hazardous Waste Collection

The Town offers residents two ways to dispose of Household Hazardous Waste: 1) On-Call Curbside Collection; and 2) Drop Off at the Chemical Collection Center.

On-Call Curbside Collection of Household Hazardous Waste

To comply with Dallas County’s Covid-19 orders, the collection will be on Tuesdays. Residents of Highland Park have new options in Town regarding the collection of their Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). The option of dropping off materials at the Plano Road location will remain for our residents; The Town of Highland Park, in partnership with Dallas County and Stericycle is offering Town residents a new, on-call curbside collection for HHW. For more about this program: On-Call HHW Flyer.

On-Call Curbside Collection of HHW has temporarily been amended to a twice-per-week service, to comply with the Dallas County HHW Collection Center’s amended hours. 

How To Request the On-Call Curbside Collection of HHW: This service is offered to Town residents for $160 per collection, which will show on the next month’s water bill. Curbside Collection can be scheduled 24-hours in advance by calling (214) 521-4161. Place your items in an open cardboard box, with a list of items included at your parkway curbside. As part of this program, please complete the On-Call Curbside Collection of HHW Form (PDF).
