(STILLWATER, OK) – The Watershed Quality division is conducting their Spring Household Hazardous Waste collection event on Saturday, April 23 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Convenience Collection Center (807 S. Perkins Road).

During this event, residents are encouraged to drop off household pollutants free of charge.

Virtually any household pollutant will be collected, including oil-based paints, household cleaners, mixed fuels, lawn care products, pool chemicals and unwanted pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceuticals can also be dropped off in the lobby of the Stillwater Police Department year-round. Visit for a full list of accepted items.

In conjunction with this event, the Convenience Collection Center will be open to receive tires, oil, antifreeze, automobile batteries, rechargeable batteries, scrap metal, latex paint, fluorescent bulbs and any other everyday recyclables. A fee may apply for some services.

The Convenience Collection Center will suspend receiving yard waste during the event, but will resume once the event has ended.

The City of Stillwater began sponsoring Household Hazardous Waste collection events in October of 1998. These events continue to help citizens reduce the amount of household pollutants in their homes while ensuring they are properly disposed. The City is also using this opportunity to bring awareness to residents about the recycling opportunities the Convenience Collection Center offers.
