Mesa residents encouraged to take advantage of Household Hazardous Waste

Collection events Mesa residents looking for a way to get rid of old cans of paint, batteries,

pesticides, or tires are invited to bring these and other household

hazardous waste materials to City sponsored collection events.

Our next event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 6 at the

East Mesa Service Center, 6935 E. Decatur (east of Power Road, north of

University). There is no cost to take advantage of this service, but Mesa

residents are asked to show their most recent trash bill upon arrival.

Hazardous household waste will only be accepted during the event dates and

times and residents are asked to remain in their vehicles at all times while

at the collection site.

Waste should be sealed in its original container if possible, and unmarked

containers should be labeled if the contents are known.

Acceptable items:

Paint, polishes & varnishes

Pool chemicals

Turpentine

Adhesives

Antifreeze

Gasoline

Mercury

Electronics

Fuel additives

Paint-related materials

Aerosol cans

Motor oil

Appliances (limit 2)

Batteries

Pesticides

Transmission fluid

Fluorescent light bulbs

Automotive tires (limit 5); rims are accepted if the tire has been

removed

Industrial waste, 55-gallon drums and large truck tires will not be

accepted. Collected materials will be recycled, reused or disposed of in an

environmentally responsible manner. For more information, call the Mesa

Recycling Hotline at (480) 644-2222 or visit www.cityofmesa.org.
