HHW Collection Program

(Updated 04/05/2022)

Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste (HHW/E-Waste) collection event participants are strongly encouraged to wear face covering and remain in their vehicles. Please stay home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or have been asked to quarantine.

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.
