Spring Cleaning? HHWCC’s to the Rescue


The combination of spring’s arrival and the community beginning to open up a little with eased COVID restrictions may inspire you to do some spring cleaning. The County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers (HHWCCs) have remained open through COVID and continue to accept household hazardous waste, including such products and materials paints, cleaners, oils, batteries, and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients, as well as e-waste, like batteries, computers, old phones and TVs and more. . .

Conveniently located in four locations around Orange County, this service is FREE to all OC residents. For a fact sheet on the HHWs and what is accepted, please click here.

OCWR offers many tools and resources to help you manage your household waste, especially deciding what is recyclable. Visit these sites for information:
