Crandall Debuts Household Hazardous Waste Pickup Service

CRANDALL – The City of Crandall and HHW Solutions have partnered to provide local residents with a curbside collection program to discard of Household Hazardous Wastes. Please have your items at the curb by 8:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. The next scheduled date is Tuesday, July 24.

Examples of what is included in the pickup are paints, propane oil, gasoline, batterie, and pest/garden sprays. Please follow the placement guidelines for safe and efficient pickup.

What is HHW?
HHW is Household Hazardous Waste. It is not a scary as it sounds. HHW items are very common. Items such as paints, insecticides, weed killers, solvents, used motor oil, and swimming pool chemicals are all considered Household Hazardous Wastes. Generally speaking, any chemical that is bought at the grocery store or hardware store is probably considered HHW when the homeowner decides to dispose of the item.

Why is HHW a Problem?
HHW can be difficult to manage because Texas State Law prohibits disposing of these items in landfills. Because HHW is not accepted at the landfill, trash companies will not collect it. Cities and towns have struggled to find a convenient, cost effective method for citizens to dispose of HHW.
