City to Temporarily Reopen Recycle Center as Taney County Makes Plans to Take Over Recycling Operations

Household Chemicals

Appointment Required

Taney County residents can safely dispose of common household hazardous chemicals at no charge at the Branson Recycle Center by calling 417-337-8559 to make an appointment. 

Common products found in your garage or utility cabinets cause water pollution when improperly poured down storm drains, into roadside ditches, or into the gutter. Never pour anything down a curb or storm drain that you wouldn't pour into a river.

Materials accepted by appointment only at Branson household chemical collections include:

  • Auto fluids
  • Cleaners
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Kerosene
  • Oil-based paint (no Latex)
  • Pesticides
  • Pool chemicals
  • Spa chemicals

No latex paint will be accepted. Unlike Oil based paint, latex paint is non-hazardous. Latex paint should be dried completely until hardened, then disposed of in the trash.  You can find more ways to dispose of it here (PDF).
