Along with Tamarac, the cities of Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Lauderdale Lakes, North Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Parkland have established a cooperative agreement which allows residents opportunities throughout the year to dispose of a full range of hazardous materials at special one-day events.
Remember, when driving up that proof of residency is required at all events, which can be either a driver’s license or utility bill.
