Crud Cruiser is coming to town! Bedford residents can dispose of household hazardous and electronic waste at the annual event beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 9 at Meadow Park Athletic Complex (3200 Meadow Park Dr.). 

Here’s what to know if you plan on participating: 

  • The capacity of the Crud Cruiser truck is limited and we recommend arriving early! Unfortunately, additional trucks are not available so if you miss this event, or the event closes before you can drop off your items, pick-up a household hazardous waste voucher to dispose of your items at the Fort Worth Environmental Collection Center. (More Information)
  • Household hazardous waste and chemicals cannot be left unattended in the parking lot. 
  • Commercial, business, and industrial waste will NOT be accepted. 
  • Tires, yard waste, ammunition, medical waste, and propane cylinders will NOT be accepted.
  • If you have EMPTY paint cans, those can be disposed of in your normal trash. If there’s still some paint left in the can and if the paint is NOT oil-based, visit www.bedfordtx.gov/hhw for tips on how to skip this event and properly dispose of your paint can. Oil-based paint is always considered hazardous and can never be thrown out in your trash.
  • Electronic waste includes computers, laptops, printers, cameras, appliances, etc.
  • Alkaline batteries (like Duracell, Energizer, etc.) can be placed in your regular trash.
