How do I get rid of…?

What Do I Do With… is an A to Z guide to recycling, reusing, composting and more.

If you’re cleaning out your garage or storage of old paint, chemicals or other “hazardous” stuff, keep in mind that they shouldn’t go into bulk pickup or regular collection.

The city’s hazardous waste collection center is open:
– at 2514 Business Center Drive, Austin, TX 78744
– Tues & Wed 10am-6pm
– Saturday 7am-noon
While you’re there, check out the facility’s Reuse Store, which stocks free donated paint, cleaning products, fertilizer, automotive fluids and other chemicals.
