The City is partnering with Waste Management to host a free drive-through E-Waste and Household Hazardous Waste Collection on Saturday, May 14 from 9 to 11 am in the City Hall parking lot. This provides residents with a free, safe and convenient way to properly dispose of hazardous items.

In celebration of Earth Day, the City's trash hauler - Waste Management - and green waste processor - Tierra Verde Industries - will offer free compost for Mission Viejo residents at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center on Saturday, April 30 at 9 am.

Proof of Mission Viejo residency is required. Quantities are limited. Each person will be allotted up to 36 gallons while supplies last. Residents should bring a shovel and bag (or container) to fill. 

The number of sidewalk food vendors popping up in Mission Viejo – and cities across the State – continues to grow; however, cities like Mission Viejo are limited by how they can regulate them. 

The City and Waste Management are teaming up to host a free composting workshop at 10 am on Saturday, April 16 in The Kershaw Garden.

Residents can learn how to turn their yard and food waste into organic fertilizer through traditional composting or vermi-composting. Compost and vermi-composting containers will be available for Mission Viejo residents to purchase or order at a significant discount.

Mission Viejo residents and businesses can destroy their sensitive documents during the free drive-through Document Shredding event on Saturday, March 26.

Hosted by Waste Management and the City's Public Works Department, the event is from 9 to 11 am (or until truck capacity is reached) in the Mission Viejo City Hall parking lot at 200 Civic Center.
