Hazardous Waste and Garbage Trucks Just Don’t Mix
Disposal of incompatible items such as, gasoline, pesticides, bleach, ammonia, and other household cleaners into a recycling container, trash container, or Brush/Bulk pile can cause a reaction when mixed with other solid waste material in a garbage truck.
Read the warning labels of items you are throwing away. Phrases such as: Flammable, Corrosive, Oxidizer and Combustible are warnings that these items need special attention for disposal.
A “Hot Load” is a load of material that catches fire, smolders, spontaneously combusts, or becomes toxic because of incompatible waste mixing inside a garbage truck. Hot loads can potentially jeopardize the health and safety of the driver of the garbage truck, as well as the public.
The City of Scottsdale Solid Waste Services asks that you know before you throw.
