Santa Clarita residents with unwanted, hazardous household and electronic waste will have a chance to dispose of items at an upcoming household hazardous and e-waste roundup.

The roundup is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at College of the Canyons, located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road. Residents can enter the event site via University Center Drive from Rockwell Canyon Road.

Residents will be able to safely and securely dispose of items such as brake fluid, paint, paint thinner, cleaners containing acid or lye, pesticides or herbicides, household and car batteries, pool chemicals, motor oil, oil filters, expired medications, anti-freeze and fluorescent light bulbs.

Computers, monitors, televisions, computer CPUs, keyboards, printers, cell phones, VCRs, fax machines and stereos are just a few of the electronic waste items that may be recycled.

Residents disposing of waste at the event should pack items in a sturdy box, preferably in their original labeled containers. Participants should be prepared to leave containers and boxes at the collection site and are advised to empty all other items from their trunk. Upon arrival at the event, residents may remain in their cars while trained personnel remove the hazardous waste from the trunk.

Items not eligible for disposal at the event include:

  • Hazardous waste and electronic waste from businesses
  • Explosives, ammunition and radioactive materials
  • Garbage and tires
  • “White goods,” such as refrigerators, stoves and washing machines.
  • Controlled substances

The roundup, operated by Los Angeles County’s Department of Public Works and the Sanitation Districts, is open to all county residents. No appointments or reservations are needed to attend.
