How do I dispose of paint and toxic materials?
Household Hazardous Materials and Toxic substances must be handled with care. As an environmentally friendly community, Inglewood has six State Certified Collection Centers for used-oil, and filters. Check the Environmental Services link for locations. Residents who have items such as paint can take them to a Household Hazardous Waste Round-ups. These events are usually held each weekend within the County of Los Angeles. Paints, pesticides, car batteries, pool chemicals and motor oils, as well as old electronics, such as computers, may be properly disposed of at these Round-ups. For more information about Round-ups call (888) CLEAN–LA.
