Citizens of Beaumont,

As you prepare for summertime, please know that disposing of empty pool chemical containers in your garbage cans is a fire hazard. Because they are toxic and pose health and environmental hazards if disposed of improperly, the following items should not be disposed of with your regular garbage:

· Batteries

· paint and varnish

· solvents

· pesticides and fertilizers

· auto fluids

· used oil and filters

· pool chemicals

· mercury

Chemical containers should always be disposed of properly at a chemical waste facility. If you have any questions about potentially toxic materials, or you would like the date of the next collection event, contact SETRPC at 409-899-8444, Ext. 7520, or visit setrpc.org. Please do your part to help keep our City of Beaumont employees and our community safe.
