Household Hazardous Waste

The Town of Fountain Hills is mindful of the need to provide its citizens with the resources to properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW).

With the current budget cuts at the state and local levels, the Town of Fountain Hills does not have the ability to provide its citizens with a coordinated household hazardous waste collection event. We would like to offer some alternatives for you to properly dispose of your HHW.

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 you 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 electronics and the other during the fall at the time of 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.
