Free Household Hazardous Waste Pickups

Laguna Woods residents are able to schedule door-to-door collections of household hazardous waste on an as-needed basis. There is no charge for this service. WM Curbside, the City of Laguna Woods’ contract service provider, will make arrangements to collect materials that residents assemble from outside of their homes.
