BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills will be hosting a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Roundup on Saturday, September 28, giving local residents a chance to get rid of objects that otherwise may not be disposed of through regular means.

In cooperation with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and Sanitation Districts, the waste roundup will be ready to receive a variety of different household hazardous waste products including, but not limited to, paint thinner, motor oil, old televisions and expired pharmaceuticals. Materials that will not be accepted by the roundup include ammunition, business waste and radioactive materials.

 

Residents are reminded to bring their items in the original cases, if possible, and to never mix products with each other. Containers holding these materials will not be returned once they are delivered to the event. Residents should not carry more than 15 gallons or 125 pounds of hazardous waste, as to do so would be illegal.

 

In case the event is missed, the Sanitation Districts encourages residents to bring their household waste to any one of the permanent HHW collection centers in the city of Los Angeles. Expired pharmaceuticals and used needles can be taken to a Safe Drug Drop-Off site, located at one of many sheriff's stations throughout the county.

 

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be located on Foothill Road between Alden Drive and West Third Street.
