Electronic Waste Disposal
Electronic Waste (E-Waste) is the term used to describe discarded electronic equipment. Television, microwaves, computers, monitors, keyboards, printers, VCR’s, fax machines, electronic games and cell phones fall in this category. These products contain Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) which are made of lead and cannot be disposed of in your trash or recycling carts.
E-Waste is accepted at Anderson Landfill located at 18703 Cambridge Road.
Household Hazardous Waste
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is any product labeled: toxic, poison, corrosive, flammable, combustible or irritant. These include many common hazardous waste items such as paint, batteries, oil, and pesticides. These products, if mishandled, can be dangerous to your health and the environment, and therefore should be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. Also, these materials should never be discarded in a sink, storm drain or in your regular trash.
The County of Shasta holds Household Hazardous Waste Round-Ups throughout the year. Household Hazardous Waste can be brought to these round-ups for proper disposal at NO charge.
