With the arrival of the New Year, many homeowners take on the task of organizing garages, cleaning out attics, and clearing off decks and patios to prepare for another wonderful Vista spring. If you have old and broken electronics, old paint or oil cans, used batteries, or other toxic products that are not suitable for donation, do not throw them away with your regular trash. Instead, take them to the Vista Household Hazardous Waste facility open on Saturdays.
Residents should drop off household hazardous waste (HHW) at:
The collection facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street, (open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, except holidays).
While there is no fee to Vista residents, proof of residency is required. When tackling your cleaning this year, please think twice about helping others and helping the environment. Diverting solid wastes from landfills and properly disposing of household hazardous wastes is good for the whole community.
