City officials were forced to postpone a planned transition to a door-to-door hazardous waste collection program pending final approval by the County of Los Angeles.

City Hall is working to provide the county with all necessary information in order to resume the collection program as soon as possible, said Andrew Basmajian, communications coordinator for the Office of Sustainability and the Environment.

In the meantime, residents and businesses with old electronics, motor oil or pesticides can drop them off at the hazardous waste facility located at 2500 Michigan Ave. beginning March 9. The facility is open Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The goal of the door-to-door program is to make it more convenient from residents to dispose of hazardous waste while also reducing costs. The service will be free for homeowners and renters.
