Non-Oklahoma City residents can still drop off their hazardous waste at a collection facility at 1621 south Portland but they may be charged for the services.

This facility is open to all Oklahoma City residents and non-residents Tuesday through Friday 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 8:30-11:30 a.m.

What will they accept?

– Pesticides, herbicides, fertilizer
– CFL and fluorescent lightbulbs
– Swimming pool chemicals

Do not pour chemicals into a single container.
Leave them in their original packages.

Some household products, although harmless in themselves, can be toxic when mixed.
