If you have hazardous materials such as old household chemicals, prescription drugs, paints, and more, do the safe thing and dispose of them properly on Saturday, February 18th.

The City of Copperas Cove Solid Waste Department and the Central Texas Council of Governments have teamed up for the Regional Household Hazardous Waste Collection event from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Copperas Cove Transfer Station, 2605 South FM 116.

Residents of Bell, Coryell, Hamilton, Lampasas, Milam, Mills, and San Saba Counties are welcome to bring their hazardous materials, but you must show proof of residency prior to dumping. You can also dispose of those old tires you have laying around for $3 per tire, and Goodwill will be collecting electronics and televisions.

For more information, contact The Cove Solid Waste Department at 254-547-4242.
