Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)


Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) & How to Properly Dispose

Many common household products and e-waste pose a hazard to the environment if disposed of improperly. Properly disposing of these items is made easy thanks to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works local collection roundups. HHW is any product labeled: toxic, poison, combustible, corrosive, flammable or irritant that is disposed of.
