Important Tips for Delivering Waste to Facilties:

  • Unless specifically noted on the city/county website, community Keep waste items in their original containers whenever possible. Do not mix separate waste products.
  • If the container label is unreadable or a material is in a different container from the original, label it (if you know for certain what it is).
  • If you have a material that is not listed below that you wish to bring to a facility, call first and explain what it is. It may save you an unnecessary trip if it may be disposed in the regular trash.
  • Cushion compact fluorescent light bulbs to ensure that they do not break.
  • When you arrive at a facility, do not leave your vehicle. Await instructions from the attendant and have proof of residency at hand.
  • If you bring waste in a container that you want back, tell the attendant. 
  • In some cases, there are limits of how much and how often a resident may visit a waste site. If you have a BIG project, consider renting a dumpster fro ma commercial garbage hauler. If in doubt about whether you are over the limit, contact the local facility in advance.

Never dump household hazardous wastes in storm drains or streams, or flush them down the toilet.
