HHW/E-Waste Collection Schedule

(Updated 5/11/2021)

Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste (HHW/E-Waste) collection events have resumed with COVID-19 safety precautions. We ask that all attendees wear a face covering (even if being vaccinated) and remain in their vehicles with windows closed, if possible. Please stay home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, have been asked to quarantine, or have recently traveled internationally.

Event staff will only remove household hazardous and electronic waste from your trunk/pick-up bed. To dispose of sharps, you will be required to exit your vehicle and dispose of them in the designated area.

Protecting public health and the environment remains our highest priority and we look forward to resuming this beneficial program in a way that is safe for everyone. For more information, please contact (888) CleanLA.

Please follow the transportation limit of 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste per trip when driving your HHW/E-waste to the County permanent centers or collection events for disposal. Business hazardous waste and electronic waste is not accepted at the County permanent centers or collection events. If you are a small business with hazardous waste, visit to locate a proper recycler. You may also qualify for the City of L.A.'s Small Quantity Generator Program.
