Trashing your toxics the RIGHT way just got lots easier Helping keep toxics out of the trash or from oozing into the ocean is everyoneâ€™s responsibility. Doing it just got lots easier.
Lakewood residents can now drop off their toxic debris once a month at the EDCO Recycling & Transfer in Signal Hill. Just six miles from the Lakewood Civic Center, it will open every second Saturday of the month to accept household hazardous waste, sharps and e-waste.
â€œThis is a huge convenience for residents. Instead of waiting for a regional roundup, they can plan to make an environmentallyÂ friendly drop-off near home,â€ says Lakewood Public Works Director Lisa Rapp. The facility can be phoned at 562-997-1122, and is located at 2755 California Avenue between Spring Street and Willow Street and north of 27th StreetÂ in Signal Hill.
