ADEQ helps residents safely dispose of hazardous waste

When people think of hazardous waste, barrels of radioactive sludge may come to mind. The truth is that there’s a lot more hazardous material likely sitting around the house.

Chemicals found in paint and other common household products can leech into and contaminate groundwater if the cans are thrown into landfills or dumped elsewhere. Yavapai County is sponsoring a free disposal for hazardous materials including paint, acids, motor oil, fluorescent bulbs, batteries and cleaning products at the Verde Valley Roads Department yard, located at 4000 Cherry Road, on Saturday, April 14.While it might not be as dangerous as plutonium, items like old paint, car batteries, oil and even old fluorescent lights could pose a danger to the environment if not disposed of properly.

With that in mind, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is teaming up with Yavapai County Public Works and other agencies across the state to provide an incentive for residents to get rid of potentially hazardous garbage as part of a host of activities in the lead-up to Earth Day, Sunday, April 22.

For the full story, see the Wednesday, April 11, edition of The Camp Verde Journal or the Cottonwood Journal Extra.
