Flagstaff Hazardous Products Center (HPC)
Changes Due to COVID-19 (Effective 03/19/2020, Updated 03/23/2020)
After considering the Mayor’s Proclamation to limit all social gatherings within City limits, the City of Flagstaff Hazardous Products Center Drop and Swap Program has been suspended immediately until further notice. Since COVID-19 is known to spread from person-to-person contact, the Drop and Swap program is being suspended to limit interactions while directly handling used products. While the Hazardous Products Center will remain open and continue to accept City and County hazardous waste for the time being, it has become abundantly clear that suspending the Drop and Swap program is the responsible step to limiting the spread of COVID-19.
In addition to the closure of Drop and Swap, all residents visiting the Hazardous Products Center will be asked to remain in their vehicle while attendants remove household hazardous waste from the vehicle.
We appreciate your patience during this time, and we look forward to reopening the Drop and Swap in the future.
