To help us better serve you once our new facility opens this fall, we are currently seeking input from Mesa residents. Please take a few minutes to complete our ONLINE SURVEY.
Construction has begun on a new, permanent household hazardous materials collection facility. The new facility will provide Mesa residential customers with a year-round option to dispose of their household hazardous material.
When will the facility open?
Construction began in December 2017 and the facility is scheduled to open this fall.
Where will the facility be located?
The new facility will be located at 2412 N. Center St.
Who will be able to use the facility?
The facility will be open to City of Mesa solid waste residential customers who pay the Clean and Green fee as part of their monthly utility bill.
Will commercial household hazardous material be accepted?
No. Hazardous material generated by commercial businesses or generated from commercial use will not be accepted. The facility is only able to accept residential household hazardous material generated from within the home and not from commercial use. For commercial waste, please contact a private hazardous waste company for disposal options.
Will collection events still be held once the new facility opens?
No. Once the facility opens this fall, there will no longer be a need to host special household hazardous material collection events.
Are there any remaining collection events scheduled while the facility is under construction?
No. Due to seasonal high temperatures and for the safety of our staff, the City of Mesa does not host collection events during this time of year. If you cannot wait until the facility opens, please visit our alternative disposal options page or contact a private hazardous waste disposal company for available options and associated costs.
What will be the hours of operation for the new facility?
The new facility will be open 20 hours per week, including Saturdays, for residential drop off.
I've heard that the new facility will have a Swap Shop. What is that?
The new facility will include a Swap Shop where certain household hazardous materials that are dropped off will be made available free of charge to Mesa residents for reuse.
How is the facility being funded?
Utility bonds are being used to construct the facility. After the facility opens, the Mesa Clean and Green fee will fund its operation.
What if I have additional questions?
