County to Host Household Hazardous, E-Waste Roundup

First published in the Sept. 10 print issue of the Glendale News-Press.

Los Angeles County residents will get the opportunity to participate in the free Countywide Household Hazardous and E-Waste Collection Event Program on Saturday Sept. 10, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Burbank Fire Department Training Center, 1845 Ontario St.
Residents will be able to safely dispose of household hazardous waste such as antifreeze, pharmaceuticals, car batteries, used motor oil, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps waste such as hypodermic needles, pen needles, syringes, lancets and intravenous needles. Universal waste including household batteries, fluorescent light bulbs and electric waste (e-waste) such as TVs and monitors, computers, VCRs, stereos and cellphones will all be accepted at the waste collection event.
The program is brought to residents by L.A. County and presented by L.A. County Public Works and L.A. County Sanitation Districts in cooperation with the city of Burbank and the neighboring cities of Glendale, Los Angeles and San Fernando.
L.A. County Public Works and Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts conduct more than 50 free Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Collection Events annually throughout the county to provide residents with a convenient way to rid their homes of unwanted hazardous materials.
Because hazardous waste can pollute the environment, it is illegal to discard these items in trash cans, sinks and storm drains. The collection events are part of a campaign to promote public awareness of proper disposal practices of household hazardous and e-waste and to provide a convenient, free disposal option.
