Proof of Cedar Hill residency is required. Due to space limitations, residents who fail to register may be turned away. Once registered, staff will check you in by your name with your proof of residency. You do not need to print the ticket. The event will be at Cedar Hill High School's parking lot (1 Longhorn Boulevard) from 9 am to 11 am. Contact Duy Vu or Gregg Kidd for additional information.

NOTE:  HHW COLLECTION CLOSES AT 11 AM. Shred and e-waste continues to noon. Registration below is only required if you bring HHW. Shred and e-waste does not require registration. Cedar Hill address and email are required.


On the morning of Environmental Collection Day, the vehicle line will be live streamed to help better serve you. View the live stream (Flash Player required).

On the event day, please read and follow the road signs carefully. Two vehicle lanes will be in place to ensure the safety of staff. The right vehicle lane will be dedicated to household hazardous waste. The left lane will be dedicated to electronics and paper shred.

First enter the right vehicle lane for HHW to ensure your drop off time. If you also brought electronics and/or paper shred, follow the road signs to re-enter the other vehicle lane after you have dropped off your HHW.


Please note that the event is located at the Cedar Hill High School parking lot near the intersection of SH 67 and Cooper. If you are using GPS, you may be given directions to the south entrance to the school which may be closed.
