Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)
The county provides hazardous waste collection services to residents of unincorporated Maricopa County so they can have a convenient and environmentally safe disposal outlet for their hazardous household waste (HHW). The service reduces illegal disposal of residential hazardous waste in our deserts and landfills. Proper collection and disposal of Household Hazardous Waste protects our air, soil and water from potentially harmful contamination.
PAINT IS NOT ACCEPTED
Household Hazardous Waste events are held at least once a year and provide all Maricopa County residents an opportunity to clean out their garages and houses and discard their HHW for free. HHW events are held during the cooler months of the year. If you live within a municipality, please contact your public works department to locate an HHW event or facility.
Residents can discard electronics, tires, batteries, oil and antifreeze at any one of our recycling centers year round.
Common HHW items include:
