Hazardous Household Waste Collection

“The City of North Lauderdale offers several opportunities throughout the year for you to bring virtually any form of household hazardous waste (HHW) and dispose of it for free.  You will see these events advertised here on our website and in our North Lauderdale NewsYou can also call our Public Works & Utilities Department at 954-724-7070 to get information about drop events.

Household hazardous waste generally includes products with toxic ingredients or components which require special disposal to prevent pollution to waterways, groundwater, air and soil, as well as to prevent poisoning or otherwise endangering humans, pets or wildlife. Many of the products we use for cleaning, painting and gluing, and automotive, pool and lawn maintenance fall into this category, as do medications and electronic components.

Household hazardous waste does not include industrial waste or construction debris which must be disposed according to specialized regulations and are not accepted at drop-off events.

Remember, it is dangerous and illegal to place any oil wastes, dangerous substances or hazardous material for garbage collection.

For more information, contact City of North Lauderdale Public Works & Utilities 954-724-7070 or email pw@nlauderdale.org
