This Saturday, Citrus Heights residents will have their final opportunity in 2017 to dispose of hazardous items like paint, cleaning supplies, vehicle batteries and fluorescent light bulbs, at a free household hazardous waste drop-off event behind Sunrise Mall.
The event is one of three annual drop-offs sponsored by the City of Citrus Heights and Republic Services and is open to any Citrus Heights resident, as long as proof of residency is provided. A recent utility bill or photo ID is acceptable.
Although many hazardous items will be accepted, a promotional website for the drop-off event states that ammunition, explosives, pharmaceuticals, radioactive material, household batteries, “home-generated sharps,” and used oil won’t be accepted. Some prohibited items for the drop-off — like used oil and household batteries — can be disposed of through Republic Services’ free weekly curbside program. (Learn more)
Organizers say drop-off appointments are encouraged, but not required, and residents can call (916) 638-9000 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
