Upcoming Household Chemical Collection Event at Starkey Road Recycling Center

The City of Largo is joining Pinellas County Solid Waste in holding an upcoming Household Chemical Collection event on Saturday, September 30 at Starkey Road Recycling Center (1551 Starkey Road) from 9am-2pm. A household chemical collection event is an easy and convenient way for residents to discard unwanted household chemicals.

Residents are encouraged to bring hazardous items such as automotive fluids, household chemicals such as adhesives, aerosols and cleaners, lawn and garden chemicals, thermometers or thermostats containing mercury, paint products, pool and spa products, and batteries. These items have the potential to contaminate our ground, air, and surface water if not properly disposed of. For a complete list of what to bring and what not to bring, visit the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection page.

For the safety of customers and staff, the following procedures should be followed:

  • Residents are asked to place electronics and chemicals in their vehicle trunk, or the back of their pickup truck, SUV, or trailer bed.
  • Residents will be asked to remain in their vehicles.
  • Please bring a government-issued ID to verify residency.
  • Collections may be delayed or canceled due to inclement weather.

Electronics and chemicals generated by businesses are not accepted at mobile collection events. View business collection dates. For detailed information about accepted items, quantity limits, and event hours and locations, visit PinellasCounty.org or call 727-464-7500.
