First Saturdays for Household Hazardous Waste

The City of Key West offers a free collection of Household Hazardous Waste (household chemicals and electronics) on the First Saturday of every month at Indigenous Park, 1801 White Street, from 8:00 am to Noon. This means disposing of chemical and electronic waste materials so they can be recycled or disposed of in a safe and environmentally sound way as required by law.
