Household Hazardous Waste
By definition, hazardous waste includes materials that can be harmful and should never go into your community’s regular trash. Common examples include:
- Automotive products (antifreeze, fluids, motor oil)
- Batteries (home and car)
- Cathode ray tubes (TVs, computer monitors)
- Fluorescent light bulbs and ballasts
- Household cleansers
- Mercury (thermometers, thermostats)
- Paints, latex and oil (must be dried)
Flurescent Bulb Recycling:
Customers can call Waste Management to request special vapor-locked bags. When these are delivered to your home they will be attached to your door knob or entry gate. Place the bulbs in the bags. Put them in a safe place away from children and keep the bag sealed. If bulbs break inside the bag, do not re-open the bag. The bags can then be set out at the curbside, next to the recycling cart for collection.
