Those looking to safely get rid of all sorts of chemicals cluttering up their homes are in luck. The City of Tuscaloosa will hold the 2021 Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day on Saturday.

Examples of these hazardous items include but are not limited to:

  • Household cleaners
  • Automotive fluids
  • Paint/Paint thinner
  • Herbicides
  • Pool chemicals
  • Batteries
  • Propane tanks
  • Antifreeze
  • Pesticides
  • Oil or gasoline
  • Light bulbs
  • Lawn chemicals/fertilizers

Tires, medical waste, and electronics will not be accepted.

The event will be held on Saturday, June 5 from 8 a.m. until noon at the Public Safety Logistics building at 3311 Kauloosa Avenue. This free drop-off event is only available to Tuscaloosa County residents. Commercial business wastes and out-of-county wastes will not be accepted.
