(see Holiday Schedule below)
101 B Avenue (Public Services Facility)

This program is available to Coronado residents only.  No business or contractor generated waste is permitted.

Put toxic waste in its place!
Household products containing toxic chemicals become hazardous waste when you decide to dispose of them. Never throw hazardous products in the trash, as the toxic chemicals may harm the environment and sanitation workers, and start fires in trash trucks. Never pour hazardous products into a sink or storm drain. It is dangerous and they will end up in our environment polluting the air, water and soil. The City of Coronado's HHW program is available so that all residents in the community can safely dispose of their toxic, hazardous waste.

How to transport Leave all products
in their original containers. Do not consolidate them. Make sure containers are properly sealed and not leaking. Put the containers in the trunk or back of your vehicle, away from passengers. Do not transport more than 15 gallons of liquid or 125 lbs. of solids at one time.
