COVID-19 (new coronavirus) and phone malfunctions: There is a Shelter in Place order in Oklahoma City until April 30 as the pandemic continues. Visit covid19.okc.gov for updates and details. Also, an unrelated vendor issue is preventing us from receiving many inbound phone calls, and you may be getting a busy signal. The vendor is working to fix the problem, and we're sorry for the frustration.
Some products in your home (certain paints, stains and varnishes, cleaners, polishes, automotive products, pesticides and herbicides) may contain hazardous components. The used or leftover contents of these products are known as "household hazardous waste."
If thrown in the trash these items can contaminate our environment. This pollution can effect streams, lakes, wildlife and possibly our drinking water.
The facility provides an environmentally safe place for residents to dispose of household hazardous waste and is free to Oklahoma City residents. Please bring your City water bill as proof of residency.
