(STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA / March 4, 2021) — The City of Stillwater Environmental Programs division is holding its Household Hazardous Waste collection event Saturday, April 24 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Convenience Collection Center, 807 S. Perkins Road.

During this event, residents are encouraged to drop off household pollutants free of charge.

The City of Stillwater began sponsoring Household Hazardous Waste collection events in October of 1998. These events continue to help citizens reduce the amount of household pollutants in their homes while ensuring these pollutants are properly disposed of. The City is also using this opportunity to bring awareness to residents about the recycling opportunities the center offers.

Virtually any household pollutant will be collected, including oil-based paints, pesticides, herbicides, household cleaning products, mixed fuels, fertilizer, pool chemicals, craft and hobby supplies, rechargeable batteries and more. 

We will not be collecting unwanted pharmaceuticals at this event, due to COVID-19 related concerns. Those items can be dropped off year round at the Stillwater Police Department lobby.

In conjunction with this event, the Convenience Collection Center will be open to receive tires, oil, antifreeze, automobile batteries, rechargeable batteries, scrap metal, latex paint, fluorescent bulbs and any other everyday recyclables, though a fee may apply for some services.

The Convenience Collection Center will suspend receiving yard waste during the event, but will resume once the event has ended.

For additional information on the event, contact Environmental Programs Manager Chris Franks at 405.533.8482.
