Announcement: Receive a Free Battery Bucket on National Drive-Thru Day!
I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of OC Waste & Recycling’s Drive-Thru Day tomorrow on July 24, 2019.
Drive-Thru service, believed to have originated in 1947 along Route 66, sure has changed since the days of roller skates and meal trays. Drive-thrus are now used at many businesses like pharmacies, banks, coffee shops, and even waste and recycling facilities. This iconic measure of convenience is observed annually on July 24, National Drive-Thru Day.
OC Waste & Recycling is trying to make it easy to dispose of hazardous waste, so it is recycled properly. This year, in honor of National Drive-Thru Day, they invite you to “drive thru” one of their four (4) Household Hazardous Waste Collection Centers (HHWCC) to drop off any household hazardous waste products. In exchange, you will receive a free battery bucket for recycling, while supplies last.
Can’t make it on National Drive-Thru Day? Don’t worry! The four centers are open all year long to make it easy for OC residents to dispose of their hazardous waste.
Not only do their centers help you rid of unwanted household hazardous waste, they also operate Materials Exchange Programs (MEP). These allow county residents to select five items per week, per household, of partially used household, yard and car care products, for free!
Before visiting, make sure to visit OC Waste & Recycling’s website to view a complete list of what is accepted at their centers. Please see the flyer below and visit a county HHWCC, located in District 4 in the city Anaheim or any of the other locations outside of the District in the cities of Huntington Beach, Irvine and San Juan Capistrano. The HHWCCs are open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (except holidays and rainy days).
Follow @OCWaste all week for posts about their HHWCCs. I hope you participate in National Drive-Thru Day on July 24, 2019.
