The City of Jacksonville’s Solid Waste Division is hosting a free household hazardous waste and electronic waste collection event for Duval County residents at Mandarin Park.
Household hazardous waste and e-waste mobile collection events are scheduled 11 times a year, from November to June, at various locations throughout the city. Residents are encouraged to utilize these mobile events to dispose of waste in order to prevent otherwise recyclable and/or hazardous materials from being disposed of in the landfill. Residents can also drop off their household hazardous waste and e-waste year-round at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at 2675 Commonwealth Ave, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
