www.SanTanSun.com Hazardous waste cleanup in Sun Lakes


The 10th annual Sun Lakes Hazardous Waste Cleanup will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Sat., Feb. 26 at the Sun Lakes Country Club in Sun Lakes. Sponsored by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, others included in the event are Intel, which provides volunteers; Sun Lakes HOA 1 volunteers, who arrange logistics; and the Maricopa County Solid Waste Department, which provides the heavy equipment and additional manpower.


“We all have a critical role to play in preserving the safety and integrity of our community,” says Supervisor Fulton Brock. “One of the ways that everyone can help our community is to appropriately dispose of litter and hazardous waste. Often, the public is not aware of how to safely dispose of hazardous materials. This is where local government and community partners can help. For many years, our office has encouraged various clean-up efforts and we invite you to participate by volunteering, by taking advantage of hazardous waste disposal opportunities or by spreading the word.” Brock says last year’s half-day cleanup yielded 15 tons of unwanted and potentially hazardous unwanted household products. He adds that Maricopa County safely separated and disposed of items dropped off by 847 households, such as paint, pesticides, fertilizers, batteries, electronic devices, including computers and old televisions.


“Because we live in a society that is always buying and building new projects, we are always generating more waste,” Brock explains. “Because of our habits, people must learn how to properly dispose of dangerous materials and garbage. Eradicating litter is a goal we can accomplish with proper education and community partnerships. If we work together, if individuals join in and encourage others to join these community efforts, we can keep our county litter-free.”
