HHW_Final_webGeneral Information

  • Residents are asked to remain in their vehicles and refrain from smoking while at drop-off site.  City of Mesa staff members will unload your vehicle when you arrive.
  • To minimize your service time when you pull up to the hazardous waste unloading area, we ask that you please remember the following:
    • Please seal the material in its original container if possible.
    • Please label unmarked containers if contents are known.
    • Please DO NOT place household hazardous waste materials or small containers in black plastic or other bags.  Use cardboard boxes or other containers that allow household hazardous waste materials / small containers to be clearly visible.
    • If possible, mark items you intend to drop off with "HHW" for easy identification by staff members.
  • Please note that event locations alternate between east and west Mesa.

Thank you for following these guidelines to help minimize event wait time and streamline the unloading process.  We continue to make every effort to move you through the line as quickly and efficiently as possible.
