As part of the City of Arlington Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program, a mobile collection unit allows you to properly dispose of your household hazardous waste safely and efficiently.

Once a month, the Crud Cruiser visits a neighborhood park in your community to collect old paint, motor oil and other household chemical waste. Best of all - It is free, convenient and good for the environment!

This is a first-come, first-served event. Storage capacity is limited, so please arrive early!
