A note on Chemical disposal:
Solid waste does not handle hazardous chemicals of any kind. Operations and facility's are not equipped for processing. It is illegal to dispose of materials in your container and at curbside such as auto batteries, pool chemicals, toxic or flammable items, and liquid paint. (Paint cans will get crushed and leak onto your streets. Leave lids off latex paint cans to allow the paint to dry out completely, or saturate with newspaper, or kitty litter then place in green garbage container, once cured it is no longer hazardous).
Handling surcharges may apply to residents and customers found mixing unacceptable materials or electronics with their solid waste.
*The Solid Waste Division insures that appliances containing ozone depleting gases, like Freon, are recovered and recycled properly.
Curbside customers (bill paid directly to the City) can contact Solid Waste to schedule large appliance curbside pick up.
