FREE HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL FOR OC RESIDENTS

National Drive-Thru Day

Have you been waiting to clean out under the sink and inside the garage? Disposing of any household hazardous waste you uncover  is as easy as going to a drive-thru for lunch. 

This Saturday, July 24, is National Drive-Thru Day,  and OC Waste & Recycling invites Orange County residents to drive up and dispose of your Household Hazardous Waste items for FREE at any of the County's four Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers (HHWCC). 

Simply place items such as e-waste, paint, pesticides, household chemicals, automotive products, batteries, or e-cigarette cartridges in your trunk and head over to one of the County’s four HHW Collection Centers.  When you arrive, follow the signs to the drop-off area, pop your trunk and trained staff will collect your unwanted items for disposal. It’s that easy!  Plus, you’ll receive a FREE battery recycling bucket while supplies last. 

E-waste such as televisions, tablets, cell phones and computers are also accepted at the HHWCCs. 

Can’t make it on National Drive-Thru Day? Don’t worry! Our four centers are open all year. The HHWCCs are located in Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Irvine and San Juan Capistrano and are open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except holidays and rainy days). 

Before visiting, visit this website to view a complete list of items accepted at our centers.  Follow us on social at @OCWaste, and we hope to see you July 24 to celebrate National Drive-Thru Day!
