A free household hazardous & electronic waste-recycling roundup is slated for Saturday, August 31, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the South Pasadena Unified School District headquarters parking lot.
Entrance is at Diamond Avenue and Mission Street in South Pasadena.
The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program gives Los Angeles County residents free and convenient ways to dispose of unwanted items that cannot be thrown in the regular trash.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is any product labeled toxic, poisonous, combustible, corrosive, irritant, or flammable. Some examples include antifreeze, batteries, cleaning supplies, unused non-controlled pharmaceuticals, fluorescent light bulbs, TVs, computers, and cell phones. By law, these products must be properly recycled or disposed of at a hazardous waste facility.
Hazardous waste from a single home may seem insignificant; but when millions of homes across Los Angeles County use similar products, the combined effect becomes a major problem.
The SPUSD parking lot is at 1020 El Centro St. in South Pasadena.
