OC Community Household Hazardous Waste Centers to Commemorate America Recycles Day on Nov. 15

Orange County residents are invited to help commemorate America Recycles Day on Nov. 15, 2014 by bringing in their hazardous waste to one of the county’s four community Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers and taking the national "pledge" to keep America beautiful by remembering to Reduce→Reuse→Recycle.

The four centers, which are free and open to all OC residents, are located throughout the county. They are operated by Orange County Waste & Recycling in partnership with the participating cities. OCWR also sponsors the Eco Challenge recycling outreach and education programs.


The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers invite all OC residents to “do the right thing” and help the environment by bringing in their hazardous waste on the national recognition day for recycling. Visitors will be given family/individual America Recycling Day “pledge” reminders. In addition, each visiting vehicle will receive a voucher for a free pizza from Papa John’s (while supplies last) and coupons for free children’s tickets to the Discovery Cube Orange County.

Household  hazardous waste includes  common cleaning/gardening/painting/workshop  products or materials that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients. Home hazardous waste also includes propane tanks and other flammable items, as well as electronic waste such as computer monitors, radios, TVs and video game consoles.
