Propane tanks must weigh less than 40 pounds and tire drop-offs are limited to one per participant. Items that cannot be accepted include:

  • Medical items such as sharps, medicines and radioactive waste
  • Bulky items such as appliances (refrigerators, stoves/ovens, washing machines, dryers, etc.), furniture, yard waste, construction and demolition debris, household garbage or Styrofoam

Due to limited space, loads over 100 pounds will be directed to the Leon County Hazardous Waste Center, 7550 Apalachee Parkway. Neighborhood groups or other large groups are discouraged from combining large amounts of items into a single vehicle due to safety concerns regarding transporting large amounts of unsecured hazardous materials.

When hazardous waste is disposed of through traditional means, chemicals and other pollutants can harm the local environment by infiltrating the ground water and soil. Leon County Solid Waste Management Division is dedicated to decreasing these toxic landfill items through its monthly Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) & Electronics Collection events.

Businesses and other agencies must call (850) 606-1816 to make an appointment, Monday through Friday, to drop off their items at the Leon County Hazardous Waste Center, 7550 Apalachee Parkway. Some fees will apply.
