Pasco County household hazardous waste and e-waste collection 3/18

Pasco County Utilities is hosting a household hazardous waste and electronics collection event for Pasco County residents Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Pasco High School Stadium located at 36850 State Road 52 in Dade City. (Enter stadium parking lot via Stadium Drive north of the school.)

This will be the first mobile household hazardous waste and electronics collection event in Dade City in five years.  County residents can safely dispose of household hazardous waste and recycle their electronics during this event.

“This is a great time for our seasonal and permanent residents to do some spring cleaning and gather up old paint, chemicals, car fluid and batteries,” said Pasco County Utilities Compliance Inspector Alicia Hacker.  “Many people don’t realize that things like television sets and old electronics contain hazardous materials.  Keeping these items out of the solid waste stream is pivotal and this collection event is a convenient, inexpensive way to properly dispose of them.”

The event is free to Pasco County residents; however, there is a $5.00 charge for each television, computer monitor, computer tower and laptop.  There’s a $10.00 charge for televisions 36 inches and larger.
