Imperial Valley residents who would like to rid themselves of certain types of household hazardous waste can do so beginning Jan. 5.
El Centro Public Works Director Steve Hogan said the material must be delivered to the 702 E. Heil Ave. facility in El Centro. Residents will be required to show proof they live in the county to drop off any materials. Businesses must call the facility and make an appointment before delivering the goods.
The money for the facility was obtained through a $117,000 state grant from the Integrated Waste Management Board, and the city of El Centro was designated as the county's lead administrator for the waste-collection program.
