Household Hazardous Waste & E-Waste Recycling Event


Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts and Public Works host event.

Los Angeles County Public Works and Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts
conduct more than 50 free Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Collection
Events annually throughout the County to provide residents with a convenient way to rid their homes of unwanted hazardous materials. Because hazardous waste can
pollute the environment, it is illegal to discard these items in trashcans, sinks, and
storm drains. The Collection Events are part of a campaign to promote public
awareness of proper disposal practices of household hazardous and e-waste and to
provide a convenient, free disposal option.

The event will occur on Oct. 7 from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Compton/Woodley Airport (901 West Alondra Boulevard Compton).  

County of Los Angeles residents will have the opportunity to dispose of safely
household hazardous waste such as antifreeze, unused pharmaceuticals, car
batteries, used motor oil, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps waste such as
hypodermic needles, pen needles, syringes, lancets, and intravenous needles,
universal waste, including household batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, and electronic waste (e-waste) such as TVs and monitors, computers, VCRs, stereos, and cell phones.
