One Day Collection Events

The City offers household hazardous waste collection events every spring and fall as a convenient way to dispose of hazardous materials and prevent them from ending up in the Miramar Landfill.

Items accepted at these events include oil, antifreeze, oil filters, car batteries, household batteries and fluorescent bulbs. If you have other Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) to dispose of, please check the City's HHW webpage for information on proper disposal options.

Recycling events are funded by the Environmental Services and Public Utilities Departments and a grant from the State of California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle).

Visit the CalRecycle website for more information on recycling and to find a used oil and oil filter recycling location near you.
