Los Angeles County will host a free Household Hazardous Waste and E-Waste Recycling Collection Event for Paramount-area residents on Saturday, Jan.y 8 at the Paramount Swap Meet, 7900 All America City Way from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

You can safely dispose of items like antifreeze, unused pharmaceuticals, car batteries, used motor oil, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps waste, e-waste, and more.

It’s a free and easy way to safely dispose of items that are too toxic to trash. Due to COVID-19, please wear a face mask and stay inside your vehicle, and with the windows closed if possible. All items should be in the trunk of a car or bed of a truck, and in sturdy cardboard boxes, preferably in their original containers. Be prepared to leave the boxes.
