HHW's Required To Close During Rain Events

Household Hazardous Materials

OC Waste and Recycling would like to remind our residents, that the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers, (HHWs), are required to close during rain events. This may include intermittent closures during regular operating hours, as centers may reopen when weather permits. Fortunately, those days are often few and far between. 

With four locations to choose from, HHW centers are located throughout Orange County and serve as safe disposal area for those wishing to dispose of items that you cannot place in your waste bin. FREE to all residents of Orange County, common items include batteries, paint or motor oil.

Note: Landfills remain open during inclement weather, but please expect some delay if wishing to utilize our active landfill sites.
