How to dispose of Household Hazardous Waste

Everyday household products found under your kitchen sink or in your garage are household hazardous waste (HHW).  
This includes items such as:  

  • Paint

  • Paint thinners

  • Cleaners and solvents

  • Used oil

  • Furniture polish

  • Unwanted electronic equipment

LA Sanitation (LASAN) has established a number of permanent collection sites throughout the City, known as S.A.F.E. Centers. These S.A.F.E. Centers are open every weekend and provide a convenient way to dispose of your HHW.  In addition to S.A.F.E. Centers, LASAN sponsors periodic Mobile Collection Events throughout the City where residents can drop off their HHW to be disposed of properly.
