Every 2nd Saturday of the month from 9am to 2pm, Lakewood residents can take their hazardous and e-waste to EDCO’s large transfer facility at 2755 California Avenue (between Spring Street and Willow Street) in Signal Hill. The facility is just a few miles from the Lakewood Civic Center. The next free event is Saturday, April 8.
Along with being a free option for hazardous and e-waste, the 68,000-sqare-foot facility is a traditional dump transfer station and, for a fee, takes large and oversized amounts of brick, used lumber and other material that can’t be put in residential trash carts, recycling carts or green waste cans. The facility can be phoned at 562-997-1122.
