The city of Santa Clarita will hold a free household hazardous-e-waste roundup at College of the Canyons on Saturday, November 21, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The roundup will take place in the South parking lot at COC’s Valencia campus, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Valencia 91355.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, safety precautions to keep staff and participants safe are highly enforced.

It is recommended that all attendees 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 have traveled internationally or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms have been asked to stay home and self-quarantine.

The household hazardous waste/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, CRTs, 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 household hazardous-e-waste roundup, 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

All Los Angeles County residents are welcome to attend the household hazardous waste/e-waste roundup. Reservations are not needed to participate. A transportation limit of 125 pounds or 15 gallons per vehicle is enforced.

In partnership with the city of Santa Clarita, the drive-through event is sponsored by the county of Los Angeles and presented by the Department of Public Works and the Sanitation Districts of L.A. County.
