Public Works is now offering a 6-month pilot program that assists solid waste residential customers with the proper disposal of their household hazardous waste items (HHW).
HHW should NOT be placed in the trash or recycling containers for safety reasons. Hazardous materials need to be properly disposed of to protect human health and the environment, as well as protect residents and employees from harm and hazards caused by these toxic materials.
How to Participate:
Schedule home pick-up online (live January 19)Or you may call customer service at 602-262-6251. Spanish speakers available.
You will receive an email reminder 1-2 business days before your scheduled pick-up, and you’re all set!
Because HHW materials could cause harm, please take a moment to read our HHW Guidelines to ensure a safe pick-up.
HHW drop-off locations will also be available for Phoenix residents throughout the pilot. Please refer to the HHW Alternatives Flyer for more information on drop-off sites and scheduling.
You can also check out the Recycle Right Wizard to determine the safest way to dispose of hazardous waste.

- Have your current city services bill, account number and associated address available when scheduling.
- Containing your HHW: All items must be secured in sealed leakproof containers, and then placed in a box clearly labeled “HHW”. If you have a damaged bucket or container with hazardous liquids that is leaking or may leak, please safely place it in a labeled and sealed, leakproof container to avoid spills.
Placement: Please ensure the box of items is placed outside next to your garage or front door, clearly visible and accessible to staff. DO NOT place any HHW at the curb, in the street or on the sidewalk.
All HHW items will be collected between the hours of 7am and 5pm. You will not be given a specific collection time, so please ensure your items are placed out for collection by 7am on your collection day.
