Residents may drop off their hazardous waste items on October 23 during the Town's Fall HHW Collection Event.

Make sure you have a happy, healthy home before the holidays get here. The Town's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event is Saturday, October 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Reservations are encouraged by calling Customer Service at (214) 521-4161 during normal business hours. The event will be held at 3801 Lexington Avenue, in the parking lot for the HP Pool. Bring out your unused paint cans, chemicals, old cleaners, and any other items that have a hazardous signal word: caution, warning, danger, poison, flammable, reactive, corrosive, toxic. 

If you have any medicinal items that need to be disposed of, the HPDPD is hoting the National Drug Take Back Day at Town Hall, as well. All over the counter or prescription drugs may be turned in to keep them from our water ways or from causing harm to others that do no need to take them. If you cannot get them to the drop box on October 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., there is always a drop-box  located in the DPS lobby for your convenience.

HPCAN is kicking off their Annual HPCAN Food Drive. Donations will be collected at the end of the drive-thru collection area and inside Town Hall. Donations will also be collected at Town Hall from October 23 - November 13. For more information or questions, please contact Kelle Halle, Communications Manager, at 214-521-5000 or Donations will benefit the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center.
