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.
