How to keep hazardous waste out of the ocean
Household hazardous waste drop-offs every 2nd and 4th Saturday in Signal Hill
Keeping toxics out of the trash and from oozing into storm drains and the ocean is everyone’s responsibility. Doing it just got much easier.
Lakewood residents can drop off their toxic debris twice a month at the EDCO Recycling & Transfer Station in nearby Signal Hill, at
2755 California Avenue
The location is just 10-15 minutes from the Lakewood Civic Center. It is open every second and fourth Saturday of the month to accept household hazardous waste, sharps and e-waste.
