Household Hazardous Waste & Used Oil Collection

HHW event

Many products found in your home are considered hazardous substances. Because of their chemical make up, they can poison, corrode, explode or ignite easily if not handled properly. When these products are discarded, they are considered household hazardous waste (HHW). They can cause a threat to human health or to the environment. They must be disposed of properly. It is illegal to dispose of household hazardous waste in the trash, down storm drains or onto the ground.

These types of waste should be disposed of at special HHW Events set up by the City and County. These events are held throughout the year at the City Yard located at 15670 Perris Blvd.

Used Oil Collection Recycle Oil

It is illegal to dispose of used oil in sewers, drainage systems, surface or ground waters, water courses or marine waters, onto the land or in your trash carts.

Before bringing your oil be sure to:

  • Drain your used oil into a clean container.
  • Do not mix any other materials, including water with used oil.

Take your used oil to a Used Oil Certified Center or the next Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. Used oil filters can only be disposed of at a HHW Collection Event. Filters should be drained of any residual oil and stored properly to avoid leakage. Used oil drainer containers are provided to Moreno Valley residents for free at the HHW Events in Moreno Valley while supplies last.
