Question:
Should a broken lcd monitor and a broken shredder be taken to a HHW/E-Waste collection site or event?

ANSWER:
During the year, the County conducts weekly Household Hazardous (HHW)/Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Collection Events in various locations throughout Los Angeles County. These are free and convenient ways for residents to dispose of their unwanted HHW/E-Waste(which includes ALL TVs, paint, solvents, chemicals, computers, old medications, etc). Broken lcd monitors need to be taken to one of these HHW/E-Waste Collection events for disposal. You may also dispose of the electronic portion of your shredder at one of these events.

In addition, the County of Los Angeles has a permanent collection center in the Antelope Valley (Palmdale) and has also partnered with the City of Los Angeles to allow all residents of Los Angeles County to drop off HHW/E-Waste at one of the City's 6 permanent HHW/E-Waste Collection Centers in the communities of San Pedro, East Los Angeles, West Los Angeles, Playa del Rey, Los Angeles/Glendale, and Sun Valley.
