Pinellas County residents can safely dispose of many household electronics and chemicals at upcoming mobile collection events in April. These household mobile collections offered by Pinellas County Solid Waste are free for county residents.

Upcoming events in April are Saturday, April 5 at the Palm Harbor University High School, 1900 Omaha St., Palm Harbor; and Saturday, April 26 at Tarpon Springs High School, 1411 Gulf Road, Tarpon Springs. The events run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Scheduled events are subject to change due to severe weather. For everyone’s safety, participants must be in a vehicle.

Residents can drop off electronics such as camcorders, cell phones, computers, TVs, DVD players and microwave ovens. Chemical items accepted include automotive fluids, batteries, fuel, paint and fluorescent bulbs along with other mercury containing devices.

Residents should not mix chemicals together or place them in dark plastic bags, and should keep products in original, labeled containers if possible. Individual batteries should be placed in separate plastic bags or have terminals covered with heavy tape to prevent short circuits.

Items that will not be accepted include air conditioning units and other large appliances, radioactive, biological or infectious waste, fire extinguishers, tires and propane tanks.

Businesses can participate in the mobile collection events for a fee. Businesses can arrange for drop-off and payment by calling EQ Florida at 813-319-3400 for chemicals and Creative Recycling at 813-621-2319 for electronics.

For more information on mobile collections including a full list of accepted items, instructions on how to transport chemicals and future dates, visit www.pinellascounty.org/utilities/mobile.htm.
