Do you want to get rid of some old pesticides, paint or other household hazardous waste? Saturday is your chance in Alpharetta, but you need to register to get your free confirmation form.

City residents – but not businesses – will be be able to drop off these waste materials for free on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. You won't even have to get out of your car – technicians will unload the waste from your vehicle.

Many of the materials collected will be recycled or reused.

This collection requires pre-registration and the form can be found on the city website. There is no charge for acceptable items and the list includes many paint products, home and garden chemicals and poisons.


To prepare in case there is a need to limit participation because of a large response, participation will be on a “first come, first served” basis.

How To:

  • Submit a completed pre-registration form.  You will get a return confirmation.
  • Bring your confirmation form with your items on Nov. 16.
  • Safely transport items to the collection site keeping them in original containers and separated.

For more information on the event, email Terry Porter or call her at 678.297.6213.
