Chemicals, detergents, petroleum products, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers are stormwater pollutants. Stormwater runoff enters storm drains during rain and discharges directly into the nearest body of water without any treatment to remove pollutants. This is unlike the sinks and toilets in your home that drain to a water reclamation plant for treatment. Responsible use and recycling of these wastes helps protect the quality of water sources for drinking and recreation.
The City of Fort Worth’s award-winning regional collection programs help citizens of Fort Worth and participating cities dispose of household hazardous waste in a safe, responsible, no-hassle manner.
City of Fort Worth curbside garbage and recycling services are provided by Waste Management and Knight Waste Services.
