City of Ventura residents and small businesses (CESQG’s) are encouraged to visit these monthly events and take advantage of the opportunity to dispose of HHW items properly — and avoid the risks associated with stockpiling hazardous waste (such as home fires associated with improper storage.) Over 200,000 lbs. of hazardous materials are collected from Ventura residents each year.

Typical Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) includes items such as used or contaminated motor oil and gasoline, pesticides and fertilizers, paints, thinners and lacquer, pool supplies, batteries (automotive and household), non-mind altering drugs, fluorescent tubes and light bulbs (CFL’s), cosmetics (nail polishes, removers, etc.) and many others. Remember, these items pose a serious threat to human, plant and animal life, and are illegal to place in the trash.

For more information and to make an appointment for an event, call Environmental Services, Monday through Thursdays (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) at (805) 652-4525.
