Household Hazardous Waste

The next HHW collection event is November 16, 2019.  The event is only for residential household hazardous waste and is only open to residents of Fountain Hills.  All participants must show either a licence or a utility bill showing that they are a resident of Fountain Hills. The event will be held in the parking lot of the Fountain Hills High School.  The event is from 9 AM until noon.  This is a popular event and the line to get in can be long at times, so please be patient. 

Participants will enter the event parking lot using a "Right Turn Only" from Hampstead Dr and exit onto Palisades Blvd using a "Right Turn Only"

What to bring: Old paint, gasoline, solvents, pesticides, herbicides, cleaners batteries and other like waste. 

Latex Paint


Old latex paint can be dried out in the can and then disposed of in your regular garbage. Ace Hardware also has an additive you can put in your paint to help dry it out faster.

Fluorescent Light Bulbs


Your compact fluorescent light bulbs, which contain mercury, can be dropped off at the Town Center during the two collection events.  One in the spring along with the paper shredding event and electronics recycling and the other during the fall during the paper shredding event. 

Local Business Support


Our local O' Riley's Auto Parts store located on Shea Boulevard, will take in old motor oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid at no cost. Mike’s Automotive on Panorama Drive will also take in old automotive coolant/antifreeze at no cost.

We would like to thank these local businesses for their continued support in helping keep our environment safe.
