Household Hazardous Waste Event Helps Residents Recycle Paint and Safely Dispose of Unwanted Medications

San Antonio residents are invited to dispose of household hazardous waste and old medications for free on Saturday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Brooks City Base, 8261 Boyle Road, 78235.

Residents who need to dispose of unwanted hazardous materials such as antifreeze, motor oil, paint, pesticides, batteries, old computers or cell phones should bring a recent copy of their CPS Energy utility bill along with a picture ID to enter the event.

In addition to this Solid Waste Management hazardous waste event, the San Antonio Water System will be having a MedDrop SA event. Residents are encouraged to bring unwanted medications to be disposed of in a safe and proper manner. Needles and other ‘sharps’ are not accepted. No copy of a resident’s CPS Energy bill is needed to participate in MedDrop.
