To properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW), the City of Benbrook offers collection events twice yearly; one event in the spring and one in the fall. These events often include an option to bring electronic waste (E-waste) and are free to Benbrook residents.
Proof of Benbrook residency (driver’s license or water bill) is required.
Please note: Due to space constraints paint drop-off at HHW events is limited to 30 gallons per household. Empty or dried-out paint containers can be placed in household trash.
Events scheduled for 2020:
The next Household Hazardous Waste event will be held in Dutch Branch Park on Saturday, March 14, 2020 and will run from 9:00am-11:00am (or until the collection trailer is full). Please bring proof of Benbrook residency (water bill or driver’s license).
