Household* Hazardous Waste
HHW must not be disposed in regular trash! How should I properly dispose of Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW)?
Residents may want to hold such items for the next scheduled HHW collection event (held in April). If you are unable to safely wait for that event, here are options for proper disposal of HHW:
Houston, TX 77040
Hours Open to the Public:
Wednesdays - 9AM - 3PM
2nd Saturdays of each month - 9AM - 3PM
This facility may be closed during holiday weeks.
Baytown residents living in Chambers County are invited to contact Chambers County Solid Waste Department for questions regarding proper disposal, at 409-267-8202. A $5 fee is charged to purchase a Solid Waste Disposal Permit Sticker that is valid for 24 months. No disposal fees are charged to Chambers County residents.
*NOTE: This information is for HOUSEHOLD wastes only. BUSINESSES have very specific regulations under Federal and State Law. Contact TX Commission on Environmental Quality for information at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/agency/business_main.html
Latex paint may be disposed with regular trash once it is COMPLETELY dried out. For a large volume, one option is to put a large garbage bag in a big cardboard box and then pour out the paint into the bag (in layers if necessary) until all the material is dry. Please note: this is only for latex (water-based) paints, NOT for those which are oil-based (including also varnishes, lacquers, or similar).
For additional drop-off locations and more local HHW contact information, visit Earth911.com.

Be ready to see and hear Great Things from this Growing group of dedicated volunteers!
Keep Baytown Beautiful is a cooperative program of the Baytown Beautification Advisory Commission and the City of Baytown Health Department, bringing friends, families, coworkers and neighbors together to create a cleaner, brighter Baytown.
Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off Baytown 2014 Results

Collected were 32,500 pounds of rubbish & 5 full trailers of scrap metal to be Recycled. Baytown Residents brought in about 21,000 pounds of Electronics Waste to be RECYCLED! We also collected 600 gallons of Waste Oil & 30,500 pounds of Household Hazardous Wastes that are being safely disposed & kept out of our landfills & waterways.
Congratulations, Baytown! Thanks to all who participated, and, as always, thank you to our Partners Against Litter:
