Hazardous Waste Day

09 March 2014  

You've got stuff you need to toss out, but how?

So, you’ve got stuff that needs to be tossed out. But, it’s not the normal kind of stuff like paper and plastic; it’s things like old paint cans, car batteries, electronics, tires and other types of hazardous waste that is normally not accepted with your regular trash pickup. 

Well, now is the perfect time to clear out your garage, shed and other places overflowing with things that need to go somewhere else. Residents of the City of Prescott, the Town of Dewey-Humboldt and those who live in unincorporated areas of Yavapai County can dispose of such items without cost on the Household Hazardous Waste Day. 

It takes place on Sunday, March 30 at the City of Prescott Transfer Station on Sundog Ranch Road, from 8 AM to 1 PM. 

This event is typically held about once per year, so now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity! Your garage will thank you!
