Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) poses a threat to the environment, such as our streams and rivers, if we send it to the landfill.  Items considered HHW should never be placed in your trash or recycle bins.  The most common types of HHW are Batteries, Oil, Paint, and Antifreeze (BOPA).  The City of Dallas has created a special service for its residents to dispose of these items – the BOPA Mobile.  You may have seen this truck in different locations throughout the city, collecting batteries, oil, paint, and antifreeze from residents.  The BOPA Mobile operates rain or shine.
