Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events (schedule), operated by the County and Sanitation Districts, are one-day, drive-through collection events where residents are invited to drive to a specific location to drop off their household hazardous waste and electronic waste (e-waste). There is a limit of 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste per trip.

How to prepare for an HHW collection event:

  • Pack HHW in cardboard boxes so that it does not spill during transport. Be prepared to leave your containers and boxes.
  • Put like chemicals together. Separate unlike chemicals.
  • Label materials that are not in their original containers.
  • Make sure containers are not leaking and lids are tightly sealed.
  • Put your boxes in your car trunk, away from passengers during transport. Remove all other items from the trunk.

At the event, trained personnel will ask you to remain in your car while they remove the HHW from your trunk.
