Batteries, Oil, Paint & Antifreeze Collection Event – Sat. June 8, 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, June 8th, from 8:00-9:45am 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.

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.

This event is free to MNA members that are current on their $15 annual dues or donate $10 or more to Balcones Park. Not a member? It’s easy to skip the line and join online or at the event. We are also accepting non-member drop offs for a suggested donation of $10+ as a park fundraiser. 100% of the donations raised will go to our Balcones Park improvements.

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

A BIG Thanks to Our Event Sponsor & Neighbor:

Thanks Karl Hanson for helping us make this event possible!
