HHW Collection Program

(Updated 1/7/2021)
Given the current and anticipated surges of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste (HHW/E-Waste) collection events will be temporarily suspended, beginning January 16, 2021. The suspension is in support of Public Health orders, frontline workers, and to encourage residents to remain home given the gravity of our current situation.

HHW/E-Waste should be stored in a secure container/box in a cool, dry environment away from children and pets. In case of a spill or release of a hazardous material (explosive, ignitable, combustible, etc.), please call your local Fire Department.

Protecting public health and the environment remains our highest priority. For more information, please contact (888) CleanLA.

HHW Round-Up

Welcome to the Los Angeles County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program

The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program gives Los Angeles County residents FREE and convenient ways to dispose of unwanted items that cannot be thrown in the regular trash. The collection schedule can be viewed here. Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is any product labeled toxic, poisonous, combustible, corrosive, irritant, or flammable. Some examples include antifreeze, batteries, cleaning supplies, unused non-controlled pharmaceuticals, fluorescent light bulbs, TVs, computers, and cell phones. By law, these products must be properly recycled or disposed of at a hazardous waste facility.

Hazardous waste from a single home may seem insignificant; but when millions of homes across Los Angeles County use similar products, the combined effect becomes a major problem. Make your own Alternative Household Products (PDF, 603KB, also en Español) using ingredients found in most household cabinets.

So, take part in our FREE programs in order to do YOUR part.
