The City of North Richland Hills encourages residents to dispose of household chemicals and other household hazardous waste in a safe, responsible manner. North Richland Hills residents can take household hazardous waste to the Environmental Collection Center (ECC) at 6400 Bridge St., Fort Worth, TX. The ECC is open Thursday and Friday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. You will need to show your drivers license or other valid ID to show that you are a North Richland Hills resident. When taking items to the center, residents must have at least enough hazardous waste to fill an 18-gallon bin. If you only have a couple of items, please combine these with a friend's or neighbor's to meet the minimum load.
Latex paint and stains can be dried or solidified and then can be put in the trash. Mixing in cat litter, sawdust, or a paint hardener (available at local hardware stores) will speed this process. Latex products are not harmful to the environment.
For further information about disposal of household hazardous waste, please call Neighborhood Services at 817-427-6651 or the Environmental Collection Center at 817-392-1234.
