HHW Collection Program

We ask that all LA County residents abide by the Safer at Home Order for Control of COVID-19. For that reason, Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste temporary collection events are postponed and permanent centers are closed until further notice. If you have any questions, call (800) 238-0173 or (888) CLEAN LA.

HHW Round-Up

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.

So, take part in our FREE programs in order to do YOUR part.
