Flagstaff Hazardous Products Center (HPC)

Benefits to our Community

Constructed in 2002, the Flagstaff Hazardous Products Center (HPC) provides City of Flagstaff and Coconino County residents with a convenient and permanent facility for the disposal of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW).

With this service, the HPC helps divert more than 150-tons of Hazardous and Electronic Waste from entering the Cinder Lake Landfill per year.


The HPC reserves the right to refuse any waste or load that does not comply with the following guidelines.

Residential Waste Limit

The HPC will only accept 40 gallons worth of waste per household, per day; this is measured based on container size, not the content of the container (e.g., a 5-gallon bucket still counts as 5 gallons even if there is only 1 gallon of waste inside).

No container larger than 5 gallons will be accepted.

Residents exceeding the 40-gallon limit will be required to schedule an appointment for a later date.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the HPC at 928-213-2159 or email hpc@flagstaffaz.gov.

Business Waste

Businesses wishing to drop off hazardous waste must make an appointment. Please see the Small Business Waste Program for information.

General Rules

The Hazardous Products Center has strict rules that residents must follow to utilize the facility and its programs. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in being prohibited from using the HPC's services in the future. They are as follows:

  • Obey all posted signage and personnel on site
  • No smoking at any time
  • Do not wander from the designated public areas (Drop and Swap, Drop Off Drive, and Parking Lot)
  • No scavenging (with the exception of the Drop and Swap area)
  • Any abuse (verbal or physical) directed towards HPC staff will not be tolerated
  • Small children and animals must be supervised at all times

Safety is of the utmost importance to the HPC; these rules are meant to make your visit as efficient and pleasant as possible. If you need assistance or have questions, please feel free to ask HPC staff for help.

Residency Requirements

City of Flagstaff and Coconino County residents must bring a valid AZ Driver's License or State Issued ID with your current address listed. Moreover, City of Flagstaff residents must bring a current Flagstaff Water Bill for address verification. If you do not have a current water bill, two articles of mail or utility bills must be provided for address verification.

The HPC only serves the City of Flagstaff and Coconino County. If you live outside Coconino County, the HPC recommends that you call your County offices for instructions on how to properly dispose of your Household Hazardous Wastes

Note: If your waste exceeds allowable amounts or proper ID is not shown to HPC Staff, your waste may be rejected or refused
