Community: Household hazardous waste recycling this Saturday In Altadena.

Hazardous household waste collection this Saturday in Altadena.
From 9:00am to 3:00pm at the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works Fleet and Maintenance Yard, located at 262 West Mountainview Street.
Please enter off of Figueroa Drive between Grandeur Ave. and Glenrose Ave.


Sponsored jointly by
the Sanitation Districts and Los Angeles County.

The Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Collection Program (HHW) gives Los Angeles County residents a legal and cost-free way to dispose of unwanted household chemicals that cannot be disposed of in the regular trash.

Who can come to the collections?

You can.......
if you are a Los Angeles County resident!

Some examples of what you CAN bring to a HHW collection:

Motor oil, oil filters, brake fluid
Used antifreeze
Paint, paint thinner, turpentine
Cleaners with acid or lye
Pesticides or herbicides
Household batteries or car batteries
Pool chemicals
CRTs, old TVs, misc. electronics
Mercury thermometers or thermostats
Fluorescent light bulbs
Used needles or sharps (In a Sharps container or sturdy box labeled "SHARPS") (MORE INFO)
Unwanted or expired prescriptions
What you CANNOT bring to a HHW collection:

Radioactive materials
Business waste
White goods (stoves, refrigerators, etc.)
Controlled substances
Biohazardous waste (blood, urine, etc.)
NOTE: Any electronic waste collected at these events is sent to a facility within the State of California that certifies that it is 100 percent demanufactured and recycled to the commodity level in the United States. No electronic waste collected at these events is sent overseas.

How should you prepare?

Bring the items you wish to dispose of in a sturdy box, preferably in their original, labeled containers.
Do not EVER mix products together.
It is ILLEGAL to transport more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste in your personal vehicle.
Be prepared to leave your containers. Because of permitting requirements, and the volume of people that utilize the program, items such as gasoline cans WILL NOT be returned.
