Drop Off Hazardous Waste

It is illegal in California to toss household hazardous waste (HHW) into the trash. Be sure to always take HHW like motor oil and oil filters, anti-freeze, paints, solvents, cleaners and old batteries to a certified collection facility. Riverside County has three permanent collection centers that offer free drop-off service and safe disposal of your unwanted chemicals. The county also sponsors occasional HHW collection events. Visit their website for a list of accepted materials and hours of operation.

Recycle Used Oil and Filters

Keep your car—and the environment—running smoothly by following some simple automotive best practices.

  • Maintain: Keep up with regular car maintenance to prevent leakage of oil, antifreeze and other fluids and save money on car repair.
  • Recycle: Take your used oil, oil filters and car batteries to a Riverside County household hazardous waste collection center or automotive center. You can also buy high-quality recycled motor oil and batteries for your car.
  • Clean it up: Use a drip pan to collect spills when changing car fluids. Quickly clean up any leaks or spills with an absorbent material like kitty litter and dispose of it at a collection center.
