City of Irving Solid Waste Services Offers Special Collection for Hazardous Items

In an effort to promote responsible disposal practices and environmental stewardship, the City of Irving Solid Waste Services is offering special waste collection for items that require careful handling.

Residents are encouraged to separate the following items from regular trash for curbside collection:

  • Household Paint: Limit of 5 gallons per trash collection day. Containers larger than 5 gallons will not be accepted.

  • Used Motor Oil and Oil Filters: Used oil should be stored in sealed 1-gallon containers, while oil filters must be placed in clear, sealed plastic bags. A maximum of five filters can be collected at one time.

  • Antifreeze and Transmission Fluid: These substances should be stored in sealed 1-gallon containers for proper disposal.

  • Vegetable Oil: Residents can dispose of vegetable-based cooking oils such as sunflower, peanut, and canola oil in sealed 1-gallon containers. Used cooking oil can also be dropped off in a sealed container at the collection bin located at Valley View Municipal Complex, 333 Valley View Lane.

  • Lead Acid Automotive Batteries: Only passenger car or light truck batteries are accepted for collection.

Tires are not collected at the curb; however, residents can drop off up to five tires per year at the Hunter Ferrell Landfill, 110 E. Hunter Ferrell Road, at no cost. For hypodermic needle disposal, place hypodermic needles in a container that cannot be punctured, such as an empty coffee can or soda bottle, with lid placed securely on the container and taped closed. Call Solid Waste Services at (972) 721-2232 to arrange for collection.

Residents also can participate in Household Hazardous Waste collection events to dispose of household chemicals. Residents must show proof of residency and obtain a voucher by calling (972) 721-2232 or visiting to register online.
