Do you have unused chemicals, oils or pesticides sitting in your shed or garage? The City of Tucson and Pima County have an option for you to clean out your space while keeping these hazardous materials out of the environment. On Saturday, January 11, 2014, the Household Hazardous Waste Program 2nd Saturday Collection will be held at 4004 S. Park Ave. from 8 a.m. to noon. Drop off of HHW is free for residents.

Accepted materials include: Automotive fluids, auto and rechargeable batteries from electronics equipment, toxic cleaning products, fluorescent lamps, paints, solvents, lawn and garden products, and computer equipment ($2 for monitors without computer). The program only accepts materials generated in homes—no commercially-generated materials are accepted. More information is available on-line at www.tucsonaz.gov/hhw, by downloading the “my-waste” App or by calling ES Customer Service at 791-3171.
