Batteries, Oil, Paint & Antifreeze Collection Event – Sat. May 6, 8-10am

Make sure you use a little time this weekend to gather those leftover paint cans, used oil and oil filters, and dead batteries plus clean/dry styrofoam and plastic film!

Then bring it by on Saturday, May 6th, from 8:00-10:00am to St. Stephen’s Baptist Church.

We must close at 10am to be able to get the materials to the City site and unloaded before they close at noon. If you’re not a MNA member, you can join at the event.

The Milwood Neighborhood Association will only be collecting: Batteries, Oil, Latex Paint, Antifreeze, Styrofoam and Plastic Film.

We will not be accepting other household hazardous wastes including: oil-based paint, paint thinner or stripper, cleaning chemicals, pool chemicals, pesticides.

we are asking that you be a current MNA member or donate $10 or more to Balcones Park’s Creekside Trail Repairs Project. It’s easy to become a member online.

We’re also looking for volunteers for our collection event. We need folks to corral the cars, unload vehicles, load the collection truck, and assist with separating the collected materials. If you’re looking for a great opportunity to help serve your neighborhood, meet your neighbors, and protect the environment, come join us by signing up HERE! Any questions can be sent to

This event is free to MNA members that are current on their $15 annual dues. Not a member? It’s easy to join online or at the event. We are also accepting non-member drop offs for a suggested donation as a park fundraiser. 100% of the donations raised will go to our Creekside Trail Repair Project in Balcones Park. We currently have $2,100 of the $9,700 needed to cover our part of the $117,700 grant for this project.

MNA Dues are a voluntary $15 per year and help us to continue to provide awesome events like this and the one on May 25th below!
