Hazardous Waste

County, City of New Braunfels partner on

household hazardous waste drop-off event




NEW BRAUNFELS  — Comal County and the City of New Braunfels are partnering to provide a drop-off location for residents’ household hazardous waste on Saturday, May 18.


County residents can drop off items such as paint, gasoline, insecticide or bleach in the parking lot of New Braunfels City Hall, 550 Landa St., from 8 a.m. to noon. Participants should enter the parking lot from Laurel Lane.


To verify residency, residents are asked to bring a picture ID with current address. The last car in line at noon will be the last to participate in the collection.


Participants should not mix any items and transport them only in a car trunk or truck bed. When possible, items should be in their original, properly sealed, labeled containers, which cannot exceed five gallons for liquid wastes. To minimize wait times, trailer loads will not be accepted. 


Prohibited items include ammunition, explosives, flares, fireworks, compressed natural gas cylinders, medical waste, pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, commercial waste, tires, trash and electronics.
