In California, it is illegal to place hazardous waste in the trash or recycling bin. It must be managed in a way that ensures that it will protect human health and the environment. In Oxnard, residents have access to a FREE program to properly dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW).
Appointments are required and must be confirmed at least five (5) business days prior to the event date. To schedule an appointment, use the “Schedule a Hazardous Waste Appointment” section in the Recycle Oxnard tool below or contact Clean Harbors, Oxnard’s contracted service provider at 805-987-0217. NO WALK-INS.
We do not offer curbside collection of HHW. You must make an appointment and transport materials to the designated location on the day of your scheduled appointment.
Please note – state law restricts the amount of hazardous waste that can be transported at any one time to 15 gallons or 125 pounds of material.
Collection events are held the second Friday and Saturday of each month. The location for HHW appointments is 880 W Verdulera St., Camarillo, CA.
