Residents are able to drop off waste at the Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center or come to the Crud Cruiser event on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at 1085 S.

If you would like additional information on what items are being accepted for the crud cruiser please visit the Fort Worth Environmental website.
Document shredding will also be available. Residents should bring their items to Dragon Stadium and look for our DPS volunteers. They will be on hand to guide drivers to the appropriate line to drop off their disposable items.
The City of Southlake is also partnering with Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth during the September 8, 2012 event to provide citizens with an opportunity to dispose of e-waste items including: CD/DVD drives, cell phones, computers (hard drives, monitors, laptops, cables etc.) printers, ink cartridges, keyboards and television sets.
The mission of Goodwill is to “Reduce, Reuse and Repurpose.” By donating to Goodwill’s E-waste Solutions program, Southlake residents will be helping to provide job training and green jobs to people with disabilities while also helping to make our environment safer.
