Hazardous waste can sometimes be very difficult to get rid of and proper disposal is necessary for a better enviornment. With that in mind, two opportunities have been scheduled in eastern Volusia County for collection.

Volusia County’s Solid Waste Division will host free collection events for household hazardous materials from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, at Ormond Beach Public Works, 501 N. Orchard St.; and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, at New Smyrna Beach Public Works, 124 Industrial Park.

Residents may drop off old paint, solvents, automobile and household batteries, pool chemicals, pesticides, motor oil, gasoline, other household chemicals, and up to 10 fluorescent lamps. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, traffic will be one way, and residents must stay in their cars.

Only unmixed household hazardous waste will be accepted. Insulin needles will be accepted in approved containers; the containers will not be returned. Businesses are not eligible for free disposal.

Reach thousands of people throughout Central Florida.

Residents also may bring their household hazardous waste for free disposal year-round to the Tomoka Landfill, 1990 Tomoka Farms Road, Port Orange; or the West Volusia Transfer Station, 3151 E. New York Ave., DeLand. The landfill is open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The transfer station is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Both facilities provide free paint exchange programs and electronic waste recycling.
