Saturday is the annual HHW Drop Off Event

This Saturday, November 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can dispose of household hazardous waste. Bring your items to the southwest parking lot of the Lloyd Noble Center, 2900 Jenkins Ave. Entry to the Lloyd Noble Center parking lot is from Jenkins or Chautauqua.

You can drop off chemicals, tires, cleaners, and other hazardous chemicals for free. Just bring your driver's license or a current utility bill to show that you are a resident of Norman.

Make sure your products are in the original containers, and don't mix chemicals.

Items that can be accepted include oil, paint, kerosene, cleaners, pool chemicals, pesticides, computers and computer accessories, automobile and small truck tires (without rims). Data bearing devices will have the data eradicated but residents may wish to remove their personal data from hard drives and other electronic devices. This year we can also accept sharps if they are in a rigid container, such as a laundry detergent bottle. 

Some of the items that cannot be accepted are radioactive waste, explosives, business-generated waste, household trash, compressed gas or containers, and biomedical waste, other than sharps that are placed in rigid containers.

Last year close to 1,600 households disposed of waste material at the event.  Approximately 35,000 pounds of chemicals, 8,250 pounds of used motor oil, 1,700 pounds of antifreeze, 17,000 pounds of latex paint, and 31,000 pounds of oil-based paint were brought to the event.  In addition, approximately 27,000 pounds of electronics (computers, TVs, etc.), 500 tires, and several old appliances (refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.) were collected
