CFL and Fluorescent Disposal Options

 

Compact Fluorescent Lights last longer and use less energy than traditional light bulbs. But what do you do with them when they do go bad? As a resident of Scottsdale you have several options for disposing of CFL/Fluorescent light bulbs:

  1. You can bring them to one of the City’s Household Hazardous Waste days.
  2. You can take them to any Home Depot, Ace Hardware or Ikea’s customer service desks.
  3. You can place them in a plastic bag and simply bag and tie them and then place them in your regular trash. (Our landfill is lined, sealed and monitored to prevent any impact on the surrounding environment).

For more information on CFL disposal options please contact your local power provider.

Textile Recycling Program

Textile Recycling Program

Scottsdale is now offering Textile Recycle at our Public Drop off locations.

Did you know that Americans throw away more than 68 pounds of clothing and textiles per person each year?

City of Scottsdale is proud to announce a new recycling program. We are committed to creating a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable community for our residents. The best way to “recycle” clothing is to simply donate it to channels of refuse – local thrift stores, vintage stores, Boys & Girls clubs and more.

At our public drop off locations you can simply recycle all type of clothing, shoes, hats, belts, household textiles (bed sheets, pillow cases, blankets, curtains, fabric remnants, table cloths, and towel) and soft-stuffed toys at our public drop off locations.

Let's keep textiles out of the landfills! By recycling unwanted clothing, shoes, and household textiles you are reducing landfill costs and helping the environment. All donated items must be clean, dry, and free of mold and contaminants. Keep paired shoes together by binding or tying the shoe laces.

Help us keep textiles out of the trash. Wear it, donate it, and recycle it!

For drop off locations and additional information, please call 480-312-5600 or contact us via
