Home Chemical Collection Centers

Two Home Chemical Collection Centers allow residential customers to dispose of items that can otherwise potentially harm the environment.

Certain home chemical products are also available free of charge.

  • Accepted Items

    • Oil-based paints
    • Pesticides, solvents
    • Pool chemicals
    • Electronic items including:
      • Computer monitors and televisions
      • Personal computers, keyboards, hard drives and printers
      • VCR's, audio and video equipment
      • Communication equipment such as cellular telephones and hand-held radios
    • Unbroken fluorescent light bulbs, including the older, long-tube fluorescents, modern compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and other fluorescent types
    • Latex paints that are still in liquid form
    • Propane tanks (larger tanks such as those used for RV's, forklifts, or fixed kitchen gas supply are not accepted)
    • Empty oxygen tanks

    New paints or latex paint in good condition should 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, place the paint can in your waste cart.

  • Requirements

    • Pack all containers upright in sturdy boxes
    • Tighten lids and caps on all containers
    • Place leaking containers in a larger container, along with absorbent material such as newspaper
    • Make sure all containers are labeled. If the original label has fallen off, re-label it with the contents or any information you have or label it "UNKNOWN CHEMICALS"
  • Free Home Chemicals

    New or almost-new home chemical products can be picked up from a Home Chemical Collection Center. All products are free of charge and available as-is on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. 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. The Chem-Again Program is part of the County’s effort to reduce, reuse and recycle home chemical wastes that can harm our environment.

    Miami-Dade County does not guarantee the condition or performance of any products obtained from the Chem-Again Program.
