*This event is open to Baltimore City residents ONLY.  In order to participate, you must show proof of residency when you arrive.

Items Include:
automotive fluids, break fluid, button batteries, car batteries, coal tar products, creosote products, floor care products, fungicides, furniture strippers, gasoline, herbicides, household batteries, insecticides, kerosene, laser toner cartridges, oven cleaners, paint, oil based and latex, paint, paint thinners, pesticides, pool chemicals, propane gas tanks (30 gal. only), rust removers, solvents, turpentine, varnishes and stains, weed killers, wood preservers, straight florescent light bulbs.

From the Baltimore City Department of Public Works:

These are materials that absolutely cannot go into the trash or down a drain. These materials must be disposed of by a reputable, licensed contractor. Remember, before you buy hazardous materials, think of less toxic/hazardous alternatives and, if there aren’t any, try to purchase only as much as you will use.

Based on my public works calendar I mistakenly assumed the city was picking up hazardous wastes from our house like trash pickup. I only discovered the dropoff location after missing the event. Is there an alternative for me to safely dispose of my paint, oil, stripper, etc? Thanks.
