Because of danger to health and the environment, some items absolutely will not be collected during normal garbage and/or trash collections. These materials include tires and items considered to be toxic or hazardous, such as lead, acid batteries, used motor oil, pesticides, some household cleaning materials, and paint.

For residents, certain Household Hazardous Waste and End-of-Life Electronics are collected by Escambia County. More information and a list of acceptable materials can be found on the MyEscambia webpage.
