Hazardous, electronic waste disposal offered

Residents with hazardous and electronic waste at home that’s too toxic to throw away in the trash can properly dispose of it at a city event on Saturday, officials said.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., city officials will be collecting hazardous waste, free of charge, at the Burbank Fire Training Center, located at 1845 Ontario St.

Residents are encouraged to bring products that are labeled: toxic, poison, combustible, corrosive, flammable or irritant. That may include bug spray, certain garden and paint products, automotive fluids and batteries, certain beauty products and household cleaners.

Disposing of these products improperly in the household garbage, down sinks or in storm drains is dangerous for the community and environment, officials said.

They will also be collecting electronic items, such as televisions, stereos, games, microwaves, computers and other small household appliances, for disposal.

For a complete listing of what residents can and cannot bring to Saturday’s event, visit www.cleanla.com, or call (888) CLEAN-LA.
