    Frequently Asked Questions:

        1.      What is Eco Challenge Day

        Eco Challenge Day is an event where the County of Orange partners with Discovery Science Center and Angels Baseball LP to hold a regional collection event. This is the County’s second year hosting Eco Challenge Day at Angel Stadium. The goal is to encourage Orange County residents to take the Eco Challenge by properly disposing e-waste or household hazardous waste (HHW) and dropping off reusable clothing. The first 200 cars receive their choice of either 4 free tickets (75 sets) to that night’s Angel Game or 4 free tickets (125 sets) to Discovery Science Center (first come first served).  Please enter from the Orangewood gate and proceed to the Big A for collection drop off.
