Santa Anita Park isn’t just for betting on the ponies. Recently, the famed race track played host to Los Angeles County’s hazardous and e-waste collection drive. Basically, this was the perfect time to get rid of all that stuff you know you can’t throw out in the garbage. On the hazardous waste list are things like brake fluid, paint, paint thinner, cleaners with acid or lye, pesticides or herbicides, household and car batteries, pool chemicals, motor oil, oil filters, expired pharmaceuticals, anti-freeze and fluorescent light bulbs. Residents were also encouraged to bring their electronic waste or e-waste. That would essentially be anything you can plug into a socket such as computer monitors, televisions, computer CPUs, keyboards, printers and cell phones.
The organizers were really excited about this event: “This is one of L.A. County’s largest e-waste collections for the entire year,” Santa Anita’s special projects and community service Director Pete Siberell said. “We’re set up well, with good access and we’re happy to be in a position to help.”
Unfortunately, by the time you read this article the drop off event has already come and gone. That’s because even with all that planning and excitement it was only a single day affair that lasted from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Santa Anita isn’t one of the most convenient places for most of Los Angeles residents to get to on a Saturday morning. Then there is all the hauling. You could probably fill up your SUV with pounds of electronic waste but loading up that car is going to add time to your trip. If you missed the event, you might have to wait several more months before the next one. The better way approach for getting rid of your e-waste would be to call up Junk King Los Angeles.
