Murrieta, CA – The City of Murrieta will host a FREE Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection event Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the rear parking lot of City Hall, located at 1 Town Square (24601 Jefferson Ave), Murrieta, CA 92562. This event will provide an opportunity for residents to drop off their household hazardous waste for proper and safe disposal. The collection event is sponsored and conducted by the Riverside County Waste Management Department.
Items accepted include: paints, solvents, cleaners, electronic devices, light tubes, automotive products, garden chemicals, and hobby and pool products. This program does not accept: appliances, tires, or trash, ammunition and explosives, asbestos, medication or radioactive materials. This is a great opportunity for community members to do some spring cleaning in the house and garage, and bring their household hazardous waste for collection (limit containers larger than five gallons or weighing more than 50 pounds).
The average home uses and stores more than 60 different hazardous products. Most household products like cleaners, paints, pesticides, and car products are safe if used and stored correctly. But, these same products can become dangerous when disposed of improperly. For example, if toxic household wastes are dumped into the gutter or down the drain, they will contaminate water, or disrupt the sewage treatment process. If they are thrown into the trash, they can injure or harm trash collectors. Leaving them stored for too long in cupboards or in the garage can also be dangerous to the household.
The residents of Murrieta are invited to do their part in ensuring household toxics are properly and safely disposed of – it's what’s best for the environment, and for the entire community! For additional information on the HHW collection event, please click on the link below for an event flyer.
