Leftover household products that contain corrosive, toxic, ignitable or reactive ingredients are considered Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides that contain potentially hazardous ingredients require special handling when you dispose of them.

Orange County residents can dispose of their Household Hazardous Waste items for FREE at any of the County’s four Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers, see below for locations. Additional HHW services may be available through your city. Contact your city’s recycling coordinator to find out other ways to dispose of your HHW items in your community.

If you need special assistance with household hazardous waste collection and are unable to bring it to one of our centers, please call 714-834-4000 for more information about our Door-to-Door service.

Hazardous waste and fluorescent light bulbs are the only things that we don’t take here at Earthwise Hauling. That is why we provided some Eco-Friendly sources for you. Other than that we will gladly accept any type of junk! We proudly service the Orange County area and a few surrounding cities along the border of Orange County.
