Personal Document Destruction

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s website reports that in 2007, there were 8.4 million adult victims of identity fraud in the United States, resulting in $49.3 billion in losses and many hours of grief for the victims. One of the ways to protect your identity is by shredding everything with an account number, signature, social security number, or any personal information that can be used against you.  A maximum of five boxes (11” x 12” x 15”) of paper, expired credit cards, empty binders, and computer disks will be accepted per vehicle.

Electronic Waste Disposal

Most electronic items, primarily ones that can be plugged into home outlets, will be accepted.  Appliances, engines, batteries, light bulbs, or household hazardous waste (paint, chemicals, etc.) will not be accepted.

Prescription Medication Disposal

Expired or unwanted medication could be stolen or abused by others.  Flushing medication down the toilet harms our environment.  Drop off prescription medication, over the counter drugs, and veterinary medication for safe disposal.  Syringes and medical equipment will not be accepted.
