The city of Santa Clarita, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and the LA County Sanitation District will host a free household hazardous waste roundup at College of the Canyons’ Valencia campus on Saturday, November 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Household hazardous waste or HHW includes items like paint, pesticides and electronic waste; however, there are many other household items that may seem non-toxic but are very harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly.
Items like pool chemicals, household cleaners, automotive fluids, medication and needles, beauty products, batteries and compact fluorescent light bulbs are all considered HHW items.
These events throughout the year are a great opportunity to drop-off unwanted household chemicals, electronic waste, and lancets/sharps (needles).
Used motor oil and filters in cars, motorcycles or RV’s do NOT belong in your regular trash cart or recycling containers either.

Residents can reserve a free oil change kit for pick up at City Hall, while supplies last, by calling 661-286-4098.
