Get a head start on your holiday cleaning at the City of Mobile’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event on Dec. 2 at James Seals Jr. Park.
This free event will give City of Mobile residents a chance to safely and responsibly discard items that aren’t accepted by routine trash and garbage collection services. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. The collection will be at Seals Park, located at 540 Texas Street in Mobile.
Some accepted items include automotive fluids, aerosols, batteries, fluorescent tubes, paint, cleaners, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, among others. The event WILL NOT accept tires, explosives, firearms, electronics, pharmaceuticals, medical waste, appliances, equipment, and other prohibited items.
The event is open to Mobile residents and individuals only. Contractors and businesses will not be allowed to participate, and participants will be asked to verify the zip code of their home address. Unlike similar events in the past, registration will not be required. Any resident is welcome to drop off approved items at any point during the event on Dec. 2. For additional information about the event, please contact the City of Mobile’s Environmental Services Department at (251) 208-7151.
