OC Waste & Recycling: Service Update

Orange County Landfills and Household Hazardous Waste Centers remain open during normal business hours. Materials Exchange Programs (MEPs) will reopen Saturday, June 27 for regular business hours. Follow us @OCWaste on social media for up-to -date changes and information.

We understand that many people are home and using this time to clean out their garages, cupboards, attics, etc. While spring cleaning is beneficial for everyone, proper waste disposal is just as important. Please remember that hazardous items need to be separated from your regular waste and taken to your nearby household hazardous waste collection center.

Items like batteries, paints, cleaners and old electronics cannot be thrown in your regular trash bin as they contain potentially hazardous ingredients that require special handling. Improper disposal of hazardous waste can pollute the environment and pose a threat to human health. For more information, visit
