Accepted Items

  • Automotive products (motor oil, transmission fluid, auto batteries)
  • Personal care items (unwanted medicines, cosmetics)
  • Thermometers
  • Syringes (clearly labeled and packaged in a “sharps” container or other leak proof, puncture-resistant container)
  • Household products (pesticides, paint, hazardous cleaners, CFL compact fluorescent light bulbs)
  • Electronics (TVs, computers, printers, mobile phones, tablets, VCR & DVD etc.)

How To Package Items

Look for items with DANGER, POISON, or CAUTION labels. Read labels carefully for safe handling. Ensure that all the products are labeled clearly. Tightly seal containers. Don’t mix products or bring open containers. If an item is leaking, pack in a larger container and use an absorbent material, such as kitty litter or newspaper, to soak up excess fluid. Place containers upright in a sturdy box to transport them.
