From Dave Sielken, EE HOA Board President
We have had some questions regarding what can and cannot be put into common trash for collection and what can be recycled. Here is additional information from our trash company, Titan Recycle and Trash. You can also access the recycling guidelines on the Titan website.
Motor oil is ABSOLUTELY NOT allowed into regular trash. Any automotive fluids, any types of oil whatsoever, to include cooking oil, must go to a Household Hazardous Waste facility.
The other items that must not EVER be thrown into the regular trash or recycle are LITHIUM BATTERIES. Any automotive or rechargeable battery will ignite and cause a fire when compacted. The picture here is the result of customers throwing away lithium batteries.
If you need to dispose of oil or lithium batteries, you can call the Green Valley Fire Department, 520-629-9200, for information on places that take those items for disposal.
