 Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste Survey

We would like to hear from you!

Thank you for participating and ensuring that HHW/E-Waste items are properly disposed.  Let us know about your experience by completing this quick survey.

 Single Use Foodware Accessories Upon Request Ordinance

This recently adopted ordinance prohibits food facilities such as restaurants, cafeterias, food trucks, etc. located in the unincorporated areas from providing single use foodware accessories (e.g. straws, forks, condiment packets, napkins, etc.) to customers unless the customer requests them. This ordinance also requires third-party, online food-ordering businesses to include on their platforms a way for food facilities to offer single use foodware accessories so customers may select which accessories, if any, they choose to be packaged with their order.

 Every Drop Counts

Did you know that used motor oil never wears out and can be recycled and reused? Motor oil improperly disposed onto the ground or into storm drains can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, and the ocean. Take your used motor oil to one of 650 certified collection centers in California or an auto parts store in your area to be recycled for free. Click here for more information.
