Home Chemical Collection Centers
The Public Works and Waste Management Department's permanent Home Chemical Collection Centers accept oil-based paints, pesticides, solvents, pool chemicals, unbroken fluorescent light bulbs (to include the older, long-tube fluorescents, modern compact fluorescent light bulbs [CFLs] and other fluorescent types) and other electronic waste.
The centers also accept latex paints that are still in liquid form. However, it is recommended that new paints or latex paint that is still in good condition be donated to neighbors or community groups.
If you have unusable or poor quality latex paint still in liquid form, dry out any remaining liquid with an absorbent material such as newspaper or kitty litter. Once the latex paint has been solidified, you can place the paint can in the regular household waste container for collection.
Also, propane tanks can be disposed of at one of the two Home Chemical Collection Centers. You can also dispose of empty oxygen tanks. Larger tanks such as those used for RV’s, forklifts, or fixed kitchen gas supply are not accepted.
The centers are available to non-commercial residents only.
The Chem-Again Program is part of the County’s effort to reduce, reuse and recycle home chemical wastes that can harm our environment. Chem-Again offers new or almost new home chemical products collected at the Department’s Home Chemical Collection (HCC) Centers free of charge to Miami-Dade County residents.
The program is open to residents 18 years or older and available products can be picked up by visiting either of the two HCC Centers. The available products are intended for residential use only. Individuals receiving products from the Chem-Again program will be required to sign a release form before receiving any products.
