FAQs


Trash Collection

Acceptable Materials

Regular household waste (i.e. kitchen waste) is acceptable in your curbside collection container. If possible, we recommend removing recyclable items from your garbage and placing them into your recycling collection containers.

Unacceptable Materials

The following materials require alternative methods of disposal. Be sure to check with your local landfill to understand the proper disposal options for each material.

  • Hazardous Wastes: acids, ammunition, antifreeze, asbestos, car batteries, caustics, chemicals, dead animals, explosives, fire extinguishers, fluorescent bulbs, herbicides/pesticides, motor oil, paint, poisons, propane/helium tanks
  • Electronic Waste: lithium ion batteries can create truck fires. If the material in which you would like to dispose contains a lithium ion battery (i.e. cellphone or laptop), it will need to be brought to a certified e-Waste recycler
  • Construction Debris: concrete, brick, block and palettes
  • Large Landscaping Projects: mulch, dirt, rock, stumps and sod

Medical Waste Disposal

We recommend collecting all used needles and syringes in a thick, impenetrable plastic bottle (ex. laundry detergent bottle). The sealed bottle can then be discarded in your regular household trash container. The plastic container is no longer recyclable once it has been used for the collection of medical waste.

For unused prescription medications, be sure contact your pharmacy for proper disposal. Prescriptions should never be placed in your trash or recycling container for disposal. It is our duty to keep our environment safe for all of earth’s inhabitants.
