The city of Santa Clarita welcomes residents to dispose of their unwanted household hazardous and electronic waste at the free Household Hazardous/E-Waste Roundup on Saturday, April 17, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This event will take place in the south parking lot at College of the Canyons, located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, safety precautions to keep staff and participants safe will be enforced. All attendees should wear a face covering and remain in their vehicles with the windows closed. Event staff will only remove waste from a vehicle’s trunk or pick-up bed. Residents that are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms are asked to stay home and self-quarantine.
The Household Hazardous/E-Waste Roundup is a safe and free opportunity for residents to dispose of their hazardous household and electronic waste (e-waste) such as antifreeze, paint, paint thinner, turpentine, motor oil, oil filters, brake fluid, cleaners with acid or lye, pool chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, household batteries or car batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, CRT’s, televisions and other miscellaneous electronics such as cell phones, printers and stereos. Needles or sharps (in a sharps container or a sturdy box labeled “sharps”) and unwanted or expired prescriptions may also be disposed of.
In preparation for the event, waste items should be packed in a sturdy box, preferably in their original labeled container, in the trunk of the participant’s vehicle. Participants should be prepared to leave any containers or boxes at the collection site and must remain in their vehicle while trained staff removes the hazardous waste from the vehicle’s trunk.
Items not eligible for disposal include:
– Ammunition, radioactive materials and explosives
– Controlled substances and biohazardous waste
– “White goods” including refrigerators, water heaters and other similar domestic appliances
– Waste from businesses
