City of Allen partners with the City of Plano to offer Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection. The City offers this separate collection service to keep the environment free of chemical contamination.
The City of Allen offers four opportunities for safe and anonymous medication disposal each year through the Great American Cleanup (April) and Allen Recycles Day (November); two others’ dates are set by the DEA through the Police Department. More information can be found at https://takebackday.dea.gov/.
