There are some items in your home (e.g. cleaners, batteries, paint) that are hazardous and should never be placed in your roll cart. After they have been used, they become Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). The most common types of HHW are Batteries, Oil, Paint and Antifreeze (BOPA).
The next BOPA event will be at:
P.L. Dunbar Lancaster-Kiest Branch Library
2008 East Kiest Blvd,
Dallas, TX 75216
March 14th, 2020 (8am to 11am)
This BOPA Mobile only accepts:
Oil (motor oil & oil filters)
Restrictions: The BOPA mobile will only accept BOPA. The maximum amount of material (excluding batteries) that can be dropped off per household per day is 25 gallons. Containers larger than a 5-gallon size will NOT be accepted. The maximum amount of batteries that can be dropped off per household per day is 50 pounds. Palletized batteries will NOT be accepted. This service is for residents ONLY. Any material from businesses will NOT be accepted.
To drop off at the BOPA Mobile, you must show proof that you live in a Dallas County HHW member city. Proof includes a driver's license or utility bill showing your name and address.
Residents who sign a waiver can get free household cleaning products that have been donated for reuse, while supplies last. Green Home booklets with Do-It-Yourself cleaning recipes are also available.
