Save the Date: April 9 is Household Goods & Hazardous Waste Day

The City invites the community to its Annual Household Goods and Hazardous Waste Day on Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Ave. At the free event, Carpinteria residents can dispose of almost anything: household hazardous waste, household goods such as furniture, used appliances, mattresses, clothing, fluorescent light bulbs, pesticides, herbicides, mercury thermometers, aerosol cans, cleaning products and e-waste (anything with a plug or a battery). Not accepted at the event are the following: tires, explosives, biohazards, and radioactive materials. Modifications have been made to the event to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Participants must remain in their vehicles, and items for disposal must be kept in the trunk or truck bed where staff can easily access them. Staff will not enter the vehicle cabin.
