Household Hazardous Waste

The HHW collection event was held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Fountain Hills High School.  The event was only for residential household hazardous waste and was only open to residents of Fountain Hills. The event was held in the parking lot of the Fountain Hills High School. 

The HHW event allowed residents to properly dispose of: 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.
