The City of Santa Clarita welcomes residents to dispose of their unwanted household hazardous and electronic waste at the free Household Hazardous/E-Waste Collection Event on Saturday, July 23, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will take place at the Via Princessa Metrolink Station at 19201 Via Princessa.

The Household Hazardous/E-Waste Collection Event is a safe and free opportunity for residents to dispose of their hazardous household and electronic waste (e-waste), including antifreeze, paint, paint thinner, turpentine, motor oil, oil filters and brake fluid. Also accepted are cleaners with acid or lye, pool chemicals, fertilizers, pesticides, household batteries or car batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, cathode-ray tubes (CRT) 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

A transportation limit of 125 pounds or 15 gallons per vehicle is enforced. Attendees must remain in their vehicles, and event staff will only remove waste from a vehicle’s trunk or pick-up bed.
