Do More Blue at America Recycles Day Event on Nov. 18
On Saturday, Nov. 18 the Town of Queen Creek will host a recycling event to celebrate America Recycles Day (ARD) from 8 a.m. to noon at the dirt lot on the northwest corner of Ellsworth and Maya roads (behind HomeGoods/Sprouts).
The free recycling drop-off event is being offered in partnership with Right Away Disposal for residents who receive Town trash and recycling services; participants must bring a current copy of their Town of Queen Creek utility bill (hardcopy or electronic).
Queen Creek residents are invited to drop-off a variety of materials at the free recycling event. The following items will be accepted:
Electronics: computers, hard drives, keyboards, power cords, monitors, televisions, VCRs, etc.
Metals: steel, copper, aluminum.
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).
Standard recyclable items, like aluminum cans, plastic water bottles, glass jars, etc., can be taken to the Queen Creek Recycle Center on Ellsworth Road, just north of Crewes Lane.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) items will not be accepted at the Nov. 18 event. The Town partners with the Town of Gilbert to offer free HHW vouchers to Town of Queen Creek residents. Items like oil, chemicals and rechargeable batteries should never be placed in curbside trash or recycling bins. Vouchers can be requested online, and other disposal resources can be found on the Town’s website.
