Environmental Fair


On Saturday, 406 vehicles dropped off household hazardous products at the Payson Event Center.

The event was held, thanks to a partnership among Gila County Solid Waste, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and the Town of Payson.

Working with the employees from Envirosolve by assisting with directing traffic, unloading vehicles and bulking oil, were nine Gila County employees, nine employees from the Town of Payson and Parks and Recreation, plus one volunteer from the community.

Totals have yet to calculated of the quantities of oil, paint, solvents and other hazardous products collected on Saturday, but it took two semi-trucks to haul the hazardous materials out, plus a 20-yard roll-off bin full of electronics.
