Safely dispose of paints, chemicals, oils, pesticides, and certain other items that are sitting unused in your shed or garage. The City of Tucson Eastside Service Center, 7575 E. Speedway Blvd., is open this Saturday, Dec. 1, from 8 a.m. to noon for household hazardous waste collection. Drop-off is free for city residents.
The Household Hazardous Waste Program website has a list of accepted materials, what not to bring (televisions, computer monitors, business waste, etc.), and hours of operation for other locations. The Recycle Coach™ tool for a smartphone, tablet, or computer lets users download or access information about collection sites and schedules.
