The 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 recycling event. The following items will be accepted:

Items accepted in the curbside recycling cart such as aluminum cans, plastic water bottles and 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. 9 event, according to the release.

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.
