Illegally dumping items such as paint, solvents or oil is irresponsible and hazardous to the environment. It is imperative that we dispose of these items properly to take care of our city, our country and our planet. Especially when there are appropriate places that the citizens can take these items for no charge.
To dispose of these items appropriately, simply call Household Hazardous Waste Disposal at 480-782-3510. An appointment is required, but it is usually scheduled about 2-3 weeks out from the initial phone call. The solid waste collection facility is located at 955 E. Queen Creek Road.
For most of the common household items there is no charge. However, there is a charge for items such as construction debris dirt, gravel, rock and manure. There is also a disposal fee for items that contain Freon. Items containing Freon can be taken to SA Recycling or the Scrap Metal Exchange in Tempe for no fee. In fact, you will likely be given a couple of dollars for the scrap metal.
Some of the basic items that the solid waste collection center will accept is leftover paint, pesticides, oil, pool chemical, batteries and yard waste. Residents of Chandler can also dispose of tires, with a limit of four per month.
