Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center | City of OKC – City of Oklahoma City (.gov)
Departments » Public Works
Some products in your home (certain paints, stains and varnishes, cleaners, polishes, automotive products, pesticides and herbicides) may contain hazardous components. The used, or leftover contents, of these products are known as “household hazardous waste.”
If thrown in the trash these items can contaminate our environment. This pollution can affect streams, lakes, wildlife and possibly our drinking water.
The facility provides an environmentally safe place for residents to dispose of household hazardous waste and is free to Oklahoma City residents. Please bring your City water bill as proof of residency.

When purchasing household and lawn chemicals, paint products, or automotive products, keep in mind how you plan to use, store and dispose of each product and its’ container.
The division hosts an annual “special collection” for unwanted computers, tires, ammunition, and prescription drugs. Typically, this special collection event is held at the State Fairgrounds.
You can also schedule a “mobile collection” event. A mobile collection event comes to your neighborhood and collects the same household hazardous waste accepted in the facility. The City supplies the personnel, equipment and flyers to advertise. The neighborhood schedules the date, location and passes out flyers to increase attendance. Note – this is not a “special collection” and we won’t be able to accept ammunition, tires, computers or medication at mobile events. Home Owner or Neighborhood Associations may contact us at (405) 297-1797 for more details or to schedule an event.
