Waste collection event to happen on February 5
On Saturday, February 5, the Los Angeles County sanitation district will host a household hazardous waste collection event at the Claremont Yard, located at 1616 Monte Vista Ave. The collection is free to residents and will be hosted in a drive-thru style format between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the yard.
The city asks attendees, if possible, to wear a face covering and stay in their vehicle with the windows closed during the collection.
“Household hazardous waste and electronic waste should be carefully placed in a sturdy box in the trunk or truck bed to allow for socially distanced collection,” the city added. Hazardous waste that will be accepted include household chemicals, paints, solvents, e-waste and sharps including syringes.
Residents are reminded that no explosive, ammunition, radioactive materials-controlled substances, trash, tries, or large appliances will be accepted. Sharps material must be placed in a designated bin come collection day. Residents are limited to 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste for the upcoming collection.
This collection is only open to L.A. County residents; therefore, no business waste will be accepted.
