Gasoline is extremely flammable and is one of the most dangerous substances found in residential dwellings. Gasoline should never be poured down the drain, on the ground, or thrown in the trash. Improper storage and disposal can be a health, environmental and safety hazard. Below are helpful guidelines for safe residential storage and disposal.
If you are unable to use the gas in your car or gasoline powered equipment or give it away for such use, you may dispose of your gasoline at one of the Miami-Dade County Home Chemical Collection Centers. The centers will accept a maximum of 10 gallons (2-five gallon containers) per customer in approved containers. The gasoline must be left in its container with the center technician. The Department will recycle the flammable materials through the contract vendor.
For more details on household hazardous waste and disposal please call 3-1-1.
The best way to handle leftover gasoline is to:
Use it in your car or gasoline powered equipment
Give it to someone who can use it in their car or gasoline powered equipment
