Hazardous waste, explosives, biohazardous waste, medical sharps, ashes, vehicle batteries, dead animals, liquids (paint, oil, grease, herbicides, pesticides), gas tanks, barrels without the end cut out, fluorescent bulbs, appliances, or tires However, we have tried to provide a solution for some of the items. If you wish to dispose of APPLIANCES, CAR OR PICK-UP TIRES, OR TV/ELECTRONICS we have made arrangements for you to do so only on SATURDAY from 8 a.m.-12 noon. There will be specific trailers to load these onto. For tires, there is a disposal fee: car/van tires (14-16”) $5 and pick-up tires (17-18”) $10.
