Household Hazardous Waste:

Seal Beach residents have a few options available to them to meet the requirements of the law for the disposal of household hazardous waste. The California Health and Safety Code makes it illegal to dispose of sharps waste (needles, syringes, lancets, and other sharp objects) in the trash or recycling containers, and requires that all sharps waste be transported to a collection site in an approved sharps container. The two closest County of Orange Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers available free to Seal Beach residents are:

Huntington Beach
17121 Nichols Street (at Rainbow Disposal)
Near Beach Blvd. and Warner Avenue, Use Gate 6

1971 N. Bluegum Street (at CTV Recycling Center)
At the corner of La Palma Avenue and Bluegum Street

Collection Center Hours:
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday
Closed major holidays and rainy days
