Haz­ardous waste col­lec­tion set for Sat­ur­day


Yuma’s next free House­hold Haz­ardous Waste Col­lec­tion Day is set for 6 to 10 a.m. on Sat­ur­day, July 14.

Crews will be tak­ing in house­hold haz­ardous waste items and re­cy­clables at the east park­ing lot of the Yuma Civic Cen­ter, 1440 W. Desert Hills Drive, from 6 to 10 a.m. the morn­ing of Sat­ur­day, July 14. This sum­mer col­lec­tion is set slightly ear­lier than other city col­lec­tion dates to ac­com­mo­date the high tem­per­a­tures in the area.

The city hosts house­hold haz­ardous waste col­lec­tions four times each year as part of an ef­fort to pro­vide res­i­dents with an op­por­tu­nity to dis­pose of un­wanted cor­ro­sive, flammable, toxic or re­ac­tive ma­te­ri­als that are no longer wanted and that may be dan­ger­ous to dis­pose of in the trash or drain.

Items ac­cepted at the drop-off in­clude: mo­tor oil, an­tifreeze, paint, sol­vents, house­hold clean­ers, pes­ti­cides, fer­til­iz­ers, bat­ter­ies and tires (limit of five per house­hold, must be off the rim).

Elec­tronic items that can be dropped off in­clude: com­put­ers and com­puter parts, tele­vi­sions, DVD/VCR play­ers, cell­phones and home phones.

Please note that no com­mer­cial waste will be ac­cepted. Also, no am­mu­ni­tion, pres­sur­ized gas, ra­dioac­tive waste, ex­plo­sives, pre­scrip­tion drugs or nee­dles will be ac­cepted at the event.
