Universal Waste Recycling and Proper Disposal
for Stockton, Tracy, Lodi, Manteca, Ripon, Lathrop, Escalon and San Joaquin County

How do I recycle or properly dispose of...



Hazardous waste regulations designate a category of hazardous wastes called "Universal Waste."  This category includes many items, such as fluorescent lamps, cathode ray tubes, instruments that contain mercury, batteries, and other electronic devices.  In California all universal wastes are banned from the trash.  For a more detailed description of California universal wastes see the fact sheet, Managing Universal Waste In California, by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control.

To deliver the public better information, this website has broken down Universal Waste into smaller categories of materials.  Click the "How Do I Recycle or Properly Dispose of..." links for more information on the recycling and proper disposal of these materials.
