EBR Fall Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day Oct. 17

Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day 10-17-2020BATON ROUGE, La. — Oct. 5, 2020 — East Baton Rouge Parish residents can drop off their household hazardous materials for Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. 

The City-Parish will hold the event at LSU Touchdown Village Parking Lot near the LSU Business Education Complex, 501 S. Quad Dr. Residents should enter the event on S. Quad Dr., via Nicholson Drive or Highland Road. Residents should remain in their vehicles, and for the safety of our workers we request that you wear a mask while being assisted. All workers will collect materials and engage with residents safely while using personal protective equipment.

“With our state and community now in Phase 3 of our response to the pandemic, we are able to safely hold essential events like Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day, which many of our residents rely upon in order to properly dispose of their household hazardous waste,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “I encourage all residents to take advantage of this resource as part of our ongoing efforts to maintain a safe and clean environment in East Baton Rouge Parish. Over the past 29 years, Baton Rouge residents have safely disposed of more than three million pounds of household hazardous materials through these collection events, positively impacting the Baton Rouge environment, air, water, and soil.”

Traditionally held semi-annually, the City-Parish has extended this event’s operating hours to 3 p.m. due to the pandemic-related cancellation of the spring event. Only East Baton Rouge Parish residents presenting valid identification are eligible to participate. Please see the attached flyer for materials that will/will not be accepted.

For more information, including a complete list of items accepted at the event, visit or contact the City-Parish Recycling Office at (225) 389-5194.
