Electronic waste includes: computers, printers, televisions, cellular phones, VCR tapes and records. Household hazardous waste are products often found in your garage, sheds and storage areas, or under your kitchen sink. They are corrosive, flammable, reactive or toxic. They include: paints stains, strippers, wood preservatives, adhesives, putty and caulk, solvents, anti-freeze, waste oil, pesticides, fertilizers, weed killers, drain cleaners, pool cleaning products, florescent/CFL light bulbs and waste containing mercury.
Some electronics contain poisonous chemicals that can be toxic to both humans and the environment. Recycling electronic waste properly prevents these chemicals from escaping into the environment.
Do not bring flares, ammunition, sharp objects or medications. Any automotive fluids will need to be in containers that hold no more than 5 gallons and that can be left behind for disposal. Anyone with questions can call 305-745-4307.
