Conejo Collection Center

Conejo Collection Center is experiencing multiple equipment breakdowns, and must shut down at different times each day. Until our equipment is safely and completely fixed, we can only take about half of the usual amount of trash every open day.  Please see the link below for other facilities that may be able to accept your trash.  Thank you for your patience.
