Important Information


The City will host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection, Electronic Recycling and Paper Shredding event April 23, 2022, at the City’s Service Center, 725 SE John Jones Dr. The event will be from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. and is only available to residents who live inside the Burleson city limits (proof of residency including a City water or solid waste bill is required).

Household hazardous waste items are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and capacity may be reached for certain wastes before the event ends. All electronics and appliances will be taken for free. TVs will be accepted at this event. There is no fee for paper shredding, but the volume is limited to three boxes per vehicle.

In order to avoid the lines and possibly being turned away once capacity is reached, residents may use the Fort Worth ECC for paint and other chemical drop off. 

Environmental Collection Center

Residents can take their household hazardous waste to the Environmental Collection Center (ECC). The ECC is open Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is located at 6400 Bridge Street in Fort Worth. For directions, call 817-392-EASY (3279). There is no fee for dropping off your household hazardous waste, however, residents must take a City of Burleson water or solid waste bill as proof of residency. The ECC only accepts paint, automotive fluids, other chemicals and batteries. They do not accept electronics, tires or shred paper.
