Household Hazardous Waste Program (Disposal)
The Town of Addison partners with Dallas County Home Chemical Collection Center to accept household hazardous waste from Addison residents. With a photo ID and a utility bill, all Addison residents may now take their chemical products to the drop off center in Dallas. This program allows all residents to dispose of household chemical products the responsible way. Please scroll down to the bottom of page to see a list of acceptable items.
11234 Plano Rd., Dallas, TX 75243
The collection center is located one mile north of 635, between Miller Rd. and Forest Ln. Look for a white building with bright turquoise trim. Entrance is the first driveway north of the railroad tracks on the east side of the street. Do not turn into the driveway closest to the building; it is the exit gate. For more information on what you can bring, scroll down to see a complete list. You may also click here for a PDF version.

What should I do about hazardous waste products?
- Identify them (see information below)
Look for the following words and phrases on labels: WARNING, CAUTION, DANGER, flammable, volatile, toxic, corrosive, caustic, reactive, poison, contains phosphates, eye irritant, harmful in swallowed, do not mix, wear rubber gloves.
- Use up entirely
Always read labels and follow directions carefully. If you can't use a product up, try to find a neighbor, friend, or community organization who can.
- Store in a cool, dry place
Keep all hazardous products in original containers with lids fastened securely. Do not mix, combine, or consolidate them.
- Recycle or take to collection site (See information below!)
Never throw hazardous products away with your regular trash.
Note: Motor oil, brake and transmission fluid, antifreeze, and car batteries can be recycled at most service stations.
- Use environmentally safe products
Use latex paints instead of oil based paints. Look for products that say: environmentally safe, biodegradable, contains no phosphorus, non-toxic, non-corrosive, low VOC (volatile organic compounds that cause paint fumes.)
- Don't let products go to waste
Buy only what is needed to do the job. Avoid over-purchasing with the thought it can be used later.
