Description

The Countywide Household Hazardous Waste Management Program was established the in 1988 by the County of Los Angeles, in partnership with the County Sanitation Districts. The Program is administered by Public Works and its objective is to keep residential household hazardous waste (HHW - e.g., paint, solvents, chemicals, etc.) from being disposed at municipal solid waste landfills. The Program provides a free and convenient means for residents to manage their HHW by conducting weekly collection events throughout the County. In late 2002, the Program was expanded to include the collection of electronic waste (E Waste - e.g., televisions, computers, cell phones, etc.). The Program serves all 88 cities and the unincorporated communities in the County. On average, 55 mobile collection events are conducted throughout the County annually, where about 8 million pounds of HHW are collected. Participation at the events has reached close to 80,000 households annually.
