Daytona Beach is hosting its annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 6, at the city’s Public Works Facility off Bellevue Avenue. Residents are encouraged to partake in the environmentally safe way to dispose of household hazardous waste at no charge to them.

According to a release, the following items will be accepted but are not limited to paint and paint thinners, solvents, pesticides, fertilizers, household chemicals, batteries, pool chemicals, anti-freeze, car wax, light bulbs, motor oil, and propane tanks. Materials not accepted are fuel, gas cans, tires, or lawn equipment (mowers, trimmers, or gas-powered yard maintenance items).

The city will not accept any commercial hazardous waste. 

Disposing of hazardous household materials in the regular garbage can contaminate the environment or water supply, and improperly stored chemicals pose a fire hazard, endangering children, and household pets. The city will ensure the collected materials are disposed of properly.

“It’s important to keep household hazardous waste separate from regular waste because it can be damaging to our environment. I encourage residents to participate in our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day and help preserve our environment for future generations,” Sandra Van Cleef, Solid Waste Supervisor for the City.

Daytona Beach residents will need to provide proof of residency at the site.

For questions about the drop-off program, contact Sandra Van Cleef at (386) 671-8670 or VanCleefSandra@codb.us.
