How to Dispose of Household Hazardous Waste Material

haz1 Electronics: Any item with a circuit board can now be recycled at the White Tanks Transfer Station located at 18605 W. McDowell Road. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 7:00 a.m. to 12 noon. It is closed Sundays. Their telephone number is 623-853-1707 ext. 200. 
haz2  Latex or Oil Paints: The best method of disposal for all types of paint is to "use it up, or pass it on." Give to a neighbor, schools or other non-profit organizations. Remember, empty paint cans or paint that has completely dried in the can is not hazardous and can be placed in your trash container. If the paint is not dried, remove the lid and let the paint dry thoroughly. It can then be disposed in your trash container. Mixing the paint with kitty litter will make the paint dry faster.
haz3 Motor Oil/Used Car Batteries: Some automobile repair shops can properly dispose these materials. AutoZone or Checker Auto Parts will accept your motor oil and car batteries at no cost.
haz5 Rechargeable Batteries (Nickel-Cadmium, Lithium Batteries): These are the batteries typically found in rechargeable electronic equipment, such as cordless and cell phones. Rechargeable batteries can be taken to any Best Buy, Lowes, Office Max or Radio Shack for proper disposal at no charge.
haz4 Alkaline Batteries (AA's, AAA's, C's, D's, and 9-volts): Dispose of them in the garbage container. These batteries have low toxicity, making them safe to place in your beige trash container.
haz6 Tires: Leave your used tires with the dealer. Additionally, Maricopa County tire disposal sites will accept up to five tires annually from each Maricopa County resident. Contact the Rainbow Valley Transfer Station at 602-506-4006, or the Queen Creek tire disposal site at 480-987-2498. 
haz7 CFL Light Bulbs: CFLs, or Compact Fluorescent Lights, can be taken to any Home Depot or ACE Hardware store for proper disposal. Please contact them for store hours and locations. Another option would be to take them to the Hassayampa Transfer Station; their phone number is 602-506-4006.
