Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center
Colleyville residents can dispose of household hazardous waste items (pesticides, paints, chemicals, etc.) at Fort Worth's the Environmental Collection Center (ECC).
You may use a recent water bill or a current driver’s license as proof of residency. The ECC is located at 6400 Bridge St. between I-30 and Loop 820. While residents are not directly charged for drop offs, Fort Worth charges the City of Colleyville a set fee per household drop off, so please consider collecting your household hazardous waste items and taking them in a single trip rather than taking a few items in several trips. Automotive items such as Freon and motor oil can be taken to local automotive stores. Please contact the automotive store before taking items.
