A household hazardous waste roundup for residents of Culver City and Los Angeles will be held Nov. 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 6775 Centinela Ave., near the entrance to the McDonnell Douglas helicopter plant in Westchester.
Residents of both cities are encouraged to bring used motor oil, old paint and other toxic items for safe disposal.
Roundup sponsors hope to divert toxic waste from regular landfills, where it can cause environmental damage.
Examples of what should be brought include varnish, paint thinner, car antifreeze, car batteries, household cleansers, herbicides and fertilizers.
Participants will be asked for proof of residency. The maximum load accepted is 5 gallons, or 50 pounds.
The roundup is sponsored by the city of Culver City, the city of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation and Unocal Corp. For information or a certificate, call the Culver City Fire Department at (213) 202-5800 or the Los Angeles Sanitation Bureau at (213) 485-2222.
