Rose Bowl to Host Hazardous Waste Collection Event

South Pasadena residents can safely dispose of household hazardous waste and electronic waste at a toxic collection event June 29 in Pasadena.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Brookside Park parking lot I located south of the Rose Bowl at 360 N. Arroyo Blvd.

Household hazardous waste that will be accepted includes used oil, unused non-controlled medicines, auto fluids, sharps waste/medical needles, beauty products, mercury thermostats, paint and paint-related products, auto and household batteries, lawn and garden products, and compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Electronic waste that can be dropped off includes microwave ovens, CD players, computers and monitors, small household appliances, cell phones, televisions, stereos, printers, DVD/DVR players and VCRs.

Improper storage or disposal of such items threatens the health and safety of families, neighborhoods and the environment, organizers said.

The event is being held to provide residents a way to legally and responsibly get rid of hazardous household items and e-waste.
