SCHEDULE OF COLLECTION EVENTS
Sponsored jointly by

What you CANNOT bring to a HHW collection:
White goods (stoves, refrigerators, etc.)
Biohazardous waste (blood, urine, etc.)
NOTE: Any electronic waste collected at these events is sent to a facility within the State of California that certifies that it is 100 percent demanufactured and recycled to the commodity level in the United States. No electronic waste collected at these events is sent overseas.
How should you prepare?
Bring the items you wish to dispose of in a sturdy box, preferably in their original, labeled containers.
Do not EVER mix products together.
It is ILLEGAL to transport more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste in your personal vehicle.
Be prepared to leave your containers. Because of permitting requirements, and the volume of people that utilize the program, items such as gasoline cans WILL NOT be returned.
