Too Toxic to Trash – June 25

Some Things are Too Toxic To Trash! Free Household Hazardous Waste & E-Waste Roundup on June 25, 9 to 3 p.m. Culver City National Guard Armory Front Parking Lot at 10808 Culver Blvd.

Los Angeles County residents will have another opportunity to safely dispose of household hazardous waste and e-waste free of charge at a Countywide Household Hazardous and E-Waste Roundup.

Many common household products pose a hazard to the environment if disposed of improperly. Materials such as used motor oil, paint, turpentine, acid or lye-based cleaners, household and car batteries, pesticides and garden herbicides can damage the environment if tossed in the trash or poured down a sink or storm drain.

Household E-Waste is consumer electronic equipment near the end of its useful life such as computer monitors and televisions which cannot be disposed of in trash cans. Unfortunately, electronic waste is a growing problem although many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled, including items such as VCRs, stereos, fax machines, copiers, computer keyboards and cellular telephones.

Collect those unwanted household hazardous waste and e-waste items and bring them to a free Roundup. We’ll recycle what we can and properly dispose of the rest. It’s easy to participate. Leave the products in their original container, place them in a cardboard box and drive to the Roundup site. The entire process only takes a few minutes and you never have to leave your car. No explosive or radioactive materials, tires or waste from business will be accepted. Please do not mix products together.

This Free Countywide Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Roundup is brought to you by the County of Los Angeles and presented by the Department of Public Works and the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, in cooperation with the city of Culver City.
