The HHW collection event was on November 5, 2022, at Fountain Hills High School located at 16100 E Palisades Boulevard. The event is for residential household hazardous waste and is open to residents of Fountain Hills, and members of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation.
The HHW event allows residents to properly dispose of: old paint, gasoline, solvents, pesticides, herbicides, cleaners, and other like waste.
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.
List of most common items:
•All kinds of paint; limit of five one-gallon containers per car (residential only; no commercial)
•Lacquers, thinners, wood preservatives and stains
•Solvents, paint removers, gasoline, diesel fuel, lighter fluid, waste oil, pesticides, fertilizers, drain/oven cleaners, adhesives, pool chemicals, aerosol cans, etc.
Light Bulbs and Batteries were not accepted at this event. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
