Did you know that waste haulers typically do not accept appliances, batteries, electronics, pesticides and paint in regular curbside pickup? For many of these items, it is illegal to dispose of them in your trash. What to do? Contact you local waste management provider and ask them to do a special handling pick up for certain items (usually for a fee per ton). Since these items need to be disposed of in a proper manner, make sure the waste is disposed of safely and for good.
