Register for Nov. 14 ‘QC Recycles’ drop-off event

Posted

On Saturday, Nov. 14, the Town of Queen Creek will host a recycling event to celebrate America Recycles Day.

The event will be held at the town’s Field Operations Facility, 19715 S. 220th St., north of Queen Creek Road.

New registration process

The recycling drop-off event is being offered in partnership with Right Away Disposal and is offered for residents within the Town of Queen Creek.

Residents should go online to reserve a time slot to drop off recyclables by visiting QueenCreek.org/Recycle. Residents should register by Nov. 12 to receive a confirmation email that includes a “fast pass” for entry into the recycling event.

Queen Creek residents are invited to drop off a variety of materials at the recycling event. The following items will be accepted:

  • Electronics: computers, hard drives, computer keyboards, power cords, monitors, televisions, VCRs, etc.
  • Metals: steel, copper, aluminum.
  • Tires: maximum of four, rims removed.
  • Appliances: refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves, washers and dryers.
  • Paper shredding: up to five boxes per vehicle — items from commercial businesses will not be accepted.
  • Paint: latex or water-based in original containers (containers cannot exceed five gallons).
  • Prescription Drugs: In partnership with MCSO-District 6 Queen Creek, safely dispose of unused, unwanted, and expired prescriptions and over the counter medication; however, liquids, needles and inhalers will not be accepted.

Items accepted in your curbside recycling cart such as aluminum cans, plastic water bottles and broken-down cardboard boxes can be taken to the Queen Creek Recycle Center on Ellsworth Road, just north of Crewse Lane.

Household hazardous waste items will not be accepted at the Nov. 14 event. The town partners with the Town of Gilbert to offer free HHW vouchers to Town of Queen Creek residents. Items such as oil, chemicals and rechargeable batteries should never be placed in curbside trash or recycling carts. Vouchers can be requested online, and other disposal resources can be found on the town’s website.
