 QC Recycles events are to be held 8 a.m-noon Saturdays, Jan. 4 and 11, to drop off live Christmas trees, electronics, appliances, latex and acrylic paints, and documents to shred.

The QC Recycles events will be at the Queen Creek Field Operations Facility, 19715 S. 220th St. (off 220th Street, north of Queen Creek Road behind Barney Family Sports Complex), according to a release.

The event is open to Queen Creek residents with a current Town of Queen Creek trash and recycling account. Bring a copy of your water bill.

Tires and household hazardous waste will not be accepted. You can also schedule a bulk pick-up for your Christmas tree at queencreek.org/departments/trash-recycling/bulk-trash-collection.

The town also offers a free cooking-oil recycling program. The used oil is collected and turned into clean biodiesel fuel. The collection receptacle is available year-round at Fire Station 2, 24787 S. Sossaman Road.
