HHW Reuse Centers
Through a partnership with the City of Plano, Allen residents may pick up reusable household chemicals for free at Plano’s HHW Reuse Center or the City of Allen's Chemical Reuse Center (ACRC). The ACRC will be open to the public for redistributing items as a satellite center to the Plano HHW Reuse Center.

These facilities are intended for redistributing items suitable for reuse that are collected through residential chemical collections only. Chemicals may not be dropped off at either Reuse Center. For more information, please contact Community Services at 214.509.3100.
