Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Days
Free Disposal for Islamorada Residents
December 14th and 15th
9:00 a.m. to Noon
Islamorada provides four opportunities per year for residents to dispose of household hazardous waste locally. The household hazardous waste collection is an effort to remove hazardous materials from the waste stream and to properly control disposal of the products.
On Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15, 2018, Islamorada residents may take household hazardous waste to a special drop-off location at Founders Park (MM 87 bayside). The drop-off location will be set up near the south park entrance behind the Administrative Center parking lot. Drop-off hours will be 9:00 a.m. to noon both days.
Household waste materials include bottles or cans of flammable liquid fuel and chlorine bottles, liquid poison, flammable solids, aerosol, corrosive materials, liquid or solid oxidizers, pesticides or herbicides, cyanides or sulfides, dry cell alkaline batteries, lead acid batteries, used non-contaminated oils, anti-freeze, latex paints, pcb liquids, bcb ballasts, non-regulated soaps, polishes and similar materials, contaminated oil solvents, oil based paints and thinners, and tires off the rim that do not exceed a light duty SUV.
Computer, electronic and lighting waste from your home is accepted at the drop-off days and throughout the year. Contact Advanced Disposal to schedule a free residential roadside pickup of household electronics. Pickups are made within five working days.
Residential used motor oil is also accepted throughout the year. Up to five gallons may be dropped off at the Advanced Disposal local office, 86490 Overseas Highway, between the hours of 8 AM and noon.
The household hazardous waste days are provided for Islamorada's residential solid waste customers. Commercial customers must contact Advanced Disposal to arrange for proper disposal of hazardous materials.
The drop-off days are usually the second consecutive Friday and Saturday in March, June, September and December. The dates for the 2019 will be posted in January.
