Household Hazardous Waste Event Information

Household hazardous wastes are common materials that are used in everyday homes. Some examples include but are not limited to- paint, herbicides, pesticides, gas, diesel, batteries, unused/expired medications, cleaning agents, computers, and TVs. If managed unproperly these items can pose a threat to ground, water, air quality, and even human life.

The Twin Oaks Landfill hosts a bi-annual event to properly dispose of and in many instances, recycle the materials free of charge to the residents of the Brazos Valley. The next collection event is scheduled for October 21, 2017, at the Texas A & M University Services building parking lot from 7am- 2pm. 

The Twin Oaks Landfill would like to utilize the local homeowners associations and the National Night Out campaign as an educational outlet. If your association is interested, the Twin Oaks Landfill would like to provide literature and promotional items (limited supplies) to the residents of your neighborhood.  Please feel free to contact me directly through email or phone.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Castlegate Tennis Courts

The College Station Parks and Recreation Department are currently upgrading the tennis court lights at Castlegate Park. The intent was to have all twelve light fixtures and poles replaced in one day. However, this plan did not work. So, please excuse the mess while this transition takes place. This project will be completed within the next few days.

Thank you in advance for your patience
