Kick Off Summer Safely

Memorial Day is around the corner which means it’s time to fire up the grill & open up the pool! But not so fast…we have a few reminders we’d like to go over before you officially kick off summer.

Do NOT place the following items in your curbside trash & recycling containers:

  1. PROPANE TANKS – Propane tanks are extremely flammable and should never be disposed of in your curbside trash and recycling bins (This includes the small camping size propane tanks). Contact your local solid waste authority to see if they accept them or ask the vendor you bought it from if they will take them back.
  2. POOL CHEMICALS – Pool chemicals are extremely combustible which is why they cannot be disposed of in your curbside trash and recycling bins. To dispose of them, check with the store you bought them from to see if they have any resources for disposal. You could also donate them to a local pool or check with your local solid waste authority to see if they accept them.
  3. LIVE AMMUNITION – Live ammunition should never go in your curbside trash and recycling. Check with local law enforcement, indoor gun ranges, or your local solid waste authority to see if they accept live ammunition.
  4. RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES – Rechargeable batteries can easily start fires when combined with the right materials. Never place these in your curbside collection bins. Several retailers such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Target offer drop-off programs. You can also check with your local solid waste authority to see if they accept them.

With YOUR help, we can keep our employees safe and prevent fires in our trucks and at our recycling facility by properly disposing of these combustible materials. THANK YOU!
