Household Hazardous Waste
Fort Worth ECC Temporarily Closed
On June 12, 2020, the City of Fort Worth, Environmental Collection Center (ECC) received confirmation of a positive Covid-19 test. With this in mind, the Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center has made the difficult decision to close the site effective immediately to be sterilized.
We are continuously evaluating the situation and if all goes well, we have a tentative reopening day of Thursday June 18, 2020.
As part of the wholesale water contract with the City of Fort Worth, the Town of Westlake participates in the household hazardous waste (HHW) disposal program. This means that Fort Worth allows residents in participating cities & towns to use their facilities. A proof of residence voucher is required for use of the facility. Please contact the Public Works Department at 817-490-5732 or email us to obtain your voucher.
Fort Worth’s Environmental Collection Center is near the I-30 & I-820 East interchange, at the following address:
6400 Bridge St
Fort Worth, TX 76112
Their hours are Thursdays & Fridays from 11am to7pm, and Saturdays from 9am to 3pm.
Some tips from the Environmental Collection Center (ECC):
- Leave products in original, marked containers. If unlabeled, please label contents clearly.
- Place leaking containers in a second container of like material. Glass for corrosives, metal for flammables.
- Place items securely in the trunk of the car or pickup bed.
- Remain in vehicle & allow staff to unload waste.
Accepted waste quantities
- Automotive fluids: 10 gallons
- Cleaning chemicals: 10 gallons
- Cooking oil: 10 gallons
- Lawn/garden/pool chemicals: 20 gallons
- Light bulbs: 20 bulbs
- Paint and painting supplies: 30 gallons
A Help-Yourself-Shelf is available at the facility. Chemicals, cleaners, & paint in like-new condition are offered free of charge. If you have a product that is still usable, give it to someone who can use it instead of bringing it for disposal.
If you’d rather wait than travel, Fort Worth will send their “Crud Cruiser” to Westlake on October 24th, 2020 for a community collection event.
Please see the City of Fort Worth’s website for more information.
