Cleaning up and disposal of waste after the recent flooding is an enormous job. While going through the process you may come across many hazardous items that you’re unsure about how/where to dispose of in an environmentally-friendly and garbage collector-friendly way.
Items with motors, such as old car batteries, lawn mowers, cars/trucks, golf carts and recreational vehicles all have lead-acid batteries and should be taken to a household hazardous waste drop-off location. The City’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Drop-off Program makes sure that these sorts of items are disposed of properly and residents can take their items, at no extra charge, to any of the HHW drop-off locations at landfills or designated fire stations with special storage depots.
