Hazardous Waste and Electronics Collection Events are supplemental services held on the first Saturday of the month between September and May at the Public Works Operations Center, 2280 Miccosukee Rd. We also participate in the City of Tallahassee's Cash-For-Trash events on the third Saturdays of April and October at the City of Tallahassee Solid Waste Services Facility, 2727 Municipal Way.

So far this season, over 2,000 citizen superheroes have disposed of nearly 36 tons of hazardous waste, setting three new monthly records. Thank you for your support!

EVENT LIMITS

In order to safely and efficiently process accepted materials, we ask customers to limit themselves to 100 pounds or 10 gallons per vehicle. Over-sized loads will be directed to the Hazardous Waste Center. Neighborhood collections are discouraged due to safety issues of transporting large amounts of unsecured hazardous materials. Specific limits per vehicle include:

  •  1 tire
  • 25 fluorescent lamps
  • Propane tanks must be less than 40 lbs
  • 1 large screen television 

These events are limited to hazardous waste, so furniture, bulky items, appliances, construction & demolition debris, yard debris, household garbage or Styrofoam cannot be accepted. Furniture, appliances and other bulky items can be picked up by your curbside provider.  For unincorporated Leon County, Waste Pro on a call-in basis at (850) 606-1899.  For City of Tallahassee residents, use your color coded bulky item day or call (850) 891-4968 for more information.  Yard Debris can be placed in paper bags for pick-up and must not be higher than 6 feet high, 4 inches in diameter and 4 feet wide. Learn more about what can and cannot be picked up curbside here. 

We cannot accept any medical waste such as sharps or medications/supplements. No radioactive materials will be accepted. 

Hazardous waste from non-household sources (businesses, agency, church or organizations) are not accepted at Collection Events. Disposal of non-household hazardous waste is by appointment only at the Hazardous Waste Center. Some fees apply.
