Edwards AFB Environmental Management is hosting a Household Hazardous and Universal Waste Roundup on Saturday, April 26.
The roundup is at the Base Housing Office, 402 West Forbes Ave., Bldg. 6696, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Base housing and dormitory residents can drive up and drop off household hazardous and universal waste for free. Environmental Management cannot accept waste from off-base residents at this event.
Household hazardous waste includes unwanted or expired yard chemicals, cleaning supplies, paint and automotive products.
Universal waste includes nonworking devices like televisions, appliances, computers, telephones, ink cartridges and cell phones. It also includes other items like dead batteries, unbroken fluorescent tubes, halogen bulbs, aerosol cans and mercury-containing items like thermostats.
None of these items should ever be put into the trash.
