Hazardous Waste Disposal
Hazardous waste should not be thrown out with your household trash. These are things like old paint, pesticides, used oil, and batteries to name a few.
Most communities have drop off locations that will take your Hazardous Waste for free. Then they will dispose of it properly. You don't even have to get out of your vehicle. They unload everything and you then you drive away with a smile.
