Where can I bring my environmentally hazardous wastes?
1. Call your local City Hall. In many cases, they offer free once a year hazardous wastes pick-up for residents. You can be at a single home, apartment, condo, town house, it does not matter. They can serve all the residents free of charge.
2. Check your local grocery stores. Many stores nowadays accept free drop-off of certain hazardous wastes. Namely, batteries, ink cartridges, some light bulbs not to mention plastic bottles and cans.
3. There are organizations big and small that collects hazardous wastes free of charge for various purposes. Some are for charity, some are for their nonprofit fund, and some are for the environment. Find those organizations and dispose of your hazardous wastes with their service, -contributing to the future and the environment where we live now.
4. There are private businesses that do the recycling for you. The prices may vary, and we know some are like $10 and $15. You could look up the information online and in the phone book to find out who is serving the community.
