Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day Sets Record

 

 

(GOODYEAR, AZ) - City of Goodyear residents represented 68 percent of the 23.69 tons of household hazardous waste taken to Goodyear City Hall on Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day in April. This tonnage set a new collection record and shows that people are becoming better aware of how to dispose of hazardous materials! Goodyear first started the special collection for household hazardous waste materials in 2002.

 

The other three participating cities represented 32 percent: Litchfield Park (12%), Tolleson (2%) and Avondale (18%). 

 

A total of 753 vehicles came to the collection site. It cost the City of Goodyear $26,123 to dispose of its residents' waste through a hazardous waste disposal corporation.
