The City of Allen Waste Services Division will open the new Allen Chemical Reuse Center (ACRC) inside the Allen Municipal Service Center, 900 S. Greenville, on Thursday, October 4. The ACRC will redistribute household products such as bleach, ammonia, household cleaners, latex paint, spray paint, wood stains, herbicides, pesticides, grout sealers, automotive products, pool chemicals and much more. All ACRC items were collected from Allen residents that utilized the cityâ€™s free Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) curbside pickup program. These collected materials will now be redistributed to the community free of charge through the ACRC. As the ACRC serves as an extension to the Plano HHW Reuse Center, both Allen and Plano residents can pick up products at the ACRC. In order to pick up products through either center, a current utility bill and driverâ€™s license must be provided for address verification. Chemicals may not be dropped off at either Reus e Center. The ACRC will be open every Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. Hours are subject to the availability of city staff and volunteer support, and are subject to change. For more information, please contact Community Services at 214.509.3100. To volunteer at the ACRC, please contact Casey Bennett at 214-509-4555 or email email@example.com
