Household Hazardous Waste Event Information

Household hazardous wastes are common materials that are used in everyday homes. Some examples include but are not limited to- paint, herbicides, pesticides, gas, diesel, batteries, unused/expired medications, cleaning agents, computers, and TVs. If managed unproperly these items can pose a threat to ground, water, air quality, and even human life.

The Twin Oaks Landfill hosts a bi-annual event to properly dispose of and in many instances, recycle the materials free of charge to the residents of the Brazos Valley. The next collection event is scheduled for October 21, 2017, at the Texas A & M University Services building parking lot from 7am- 2pm. 

The Twin Oaks Landfill would like to utilize the local homeowners associations and the National Night Out campaign as an educational outlet. If your association is interested, the Twin Oaks Landfill would like to provide literature and promotional items (limited supplies) to the residents of your neighborhood.  Please feel free to contact me directly through email or phone.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration,

New "My Neighborhood Guide" now available

Neighborhood Services and the Public Communications Department revised the manual used by neighborhood associations and HOAs to organize and manage associations. The original manual was published in the early 2000's. The manual needed to be revised and updated to reflect the more current state and needs of associations. The manual is meant to be a resource for association leaders and representatives.  For a hard copy, contact Neighborhood Services to arrange to pick up a copy or have one mailed. For an electronic version, click here.

The move should take place the week of May 15.
